Sinopsis: The great fighting retreat of the Nez Perces, struggling for their lives, lands, and freedom, outwitting and battling off one purusing force after another, is one of the giant epics of the American West. The literature about it is immense, but there is no volume like this monumental account of the war by Jerome A. Greene. Written by one of the foremost experts in frontier military history and reviewed by members of the Nez Perce tribe, Nez Perce Summer, 1877 details the dozen armed encounters between U.S. Army troops and a desperate body of Nez Perces that spanned the long summer of 1877 in the wilds of Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana territories. A meticulously researched and well-written narrative, it chronicles a people's epic struggle to survive spiritually, culturally, and physically in the face of unrelenting military force. Sixteen maps detail troop and Indian movements and skirmishes, while 49 photographs further illuminate this sad and dramatic conflict.

From Library Journal: The war between the nontreaty Nez Perce and the United States in 1877 is one of the more dramatic in the history of such Western conflicts. The U.S. Army troops commanded by General Howard seemed hard-pressed to keep up with masterly campaigning by the Nez Perce, led by the highly capable Chief Joseph. The Nez Perce's conduct won admiration and sympathy from even the settlers in the region, although such sympathy did not help much when the Nez Perce inevitably lost and were sent to Oklahoma (then called Indian Territory). National Park historian Greene has spent many years working in the setting of the war and has written other well-received books on Indian wars, for example, Yellowstone Command: Colonel Nelson A. Miles and the Great Sioux War. Though many libraries will have Merrill D. Beal's well-known I Will Fight No More Forever or recent titles like Bruce Hampton's Children of Grace: The Nez Perce War of 1877 (LJ 1/94), Greene's book is a comprehensive, well-researched, and well-written study of the campaign and its aftermath. Highly recommended for libraries that need more than a basic title.DCharlie Cowling, Drake Memorial Lib., SUNY at Brockport
