Chief Joseph and the Flight of the Nez Perce
Kent Nerburn brings balanced passion to this popular history of the man best known for his sad speech signaling his tribe's surrender at the end of an 1,800-mile retreat from their homeland in Oregon: "I will fight no more forever."
Nerburn's novelistic chronicle moves from the kind welcome Lewis and Clark receive from the Nez Perce in 1805 to General O.O. Howard's May 1877 order for the tribespeople to move onto a reservation in Idaho within 30 days.
