Abstract:

As friends of the white American, the Nez Perce (Nee-Me-Poo) Indians aided the exhausted explorers Lewis and Clark during their epic journey westward to the Pacific in 1805. Over much of the next seventy years, however, the Nez Perce found themselves continually provoked and misled by white treaties and encroachment upon their ancestral lands. In June 1877, a handful of renegade warriors struck back by massacring eighteen settlers in Idaho. The murders quickly escalated into one of the bloodiest and most tragic Indian wars of the century, resulting in a dramatic twelve-hundred-mile chase as some eight hundred Nez Perce men, women, and children attempted to fight their way to freedom in Canada. Drawing upon original documents- letters, diaries, manuscripts, and previously overlooked oral histories- author Bruce Hampton has created a richly detailed narrative history of this enthralling account. -- from Book Jacket.

Drawing on original documents such as letters, diaries, manuscripts, and oral histories, Hampton presents the bravery, horror, perfidy, and pathos of this war.
