Editors Note A discussion of the history, culture, and contemporary life of the Nez Perce Indians.
Editors Note 1 For thousands of years, the Nez Perce people lived in the valleys of the Columbia River where the states of Idaho, Washington, and Oregon meet. Today, the Nez Perces live on reservations throughout the Northwest. Where once Nez Perce lands stretched over 17 million acres, treaties with the U.S. government shrank the tribe's holdings to a fraction of their former size. The government also seized the Nez Perces' beloved Wallowa Valley, forcing them to choose between reservation life and living on the run. With their leader Chief Joseph, the Nez Perces led the U.S. Army on a chase of over 1,600 miles and through fourteen battles before, exhausted and starving, the Indians were caught. Today, the Nez Perces are trying to regain the Wallowa Valley. This book describes an ancient people's rich past and culture and shows how they are passing on their traditions to the next generation.
