Sinopsis:

Promise: Bozeman’s Trail to Destiny examines if the Bozeman Trail - that last great western trail through Wyoming and Montana that initiated the "Indian Wars" on the Northern Plains - was actually a route of invasion that lead to cultural devastation, displacement, physical and spiritual oppression; or whether the trail was a passage through the wilderness that lead to settlement, individual liberty, prosperity, territorial recognition and statehood. To help answer those questions, author Serle Chapman employs his extraordinary artistic ability with both pen and camera, writing sections from the opposing perspectives of an emigrant woman, and a young Cheyenne warrior, incorporating the prose, native language, and expressions of the day. Chapman’s Cheyenne account of the infamous "Fetterman Massacre" is believed to be the definitive Native American interpretation of that engagement.

From the Publisher:

What better way to tell this story than for a writer and photographer of Serle Chapman's caliber to join with the descendents of those who traveled and fought on the Bozeman Trail. Chief Alfred Red Cloud, a great-grandson of Chief Red Cloud, for the first time in publication, presents the Red Cloud family’s oral history of "Red Cloud’s War" to close the Bozeman Trail. "Serle Chapman is one of the few who really knows the history of Chief Red Cloud and I pay tribute to him and this work," says Chief Alfred Red Cloud. Promise: Bozeman’s Trail to Destiny has already been endorsed by the US government’s National Historic Trails Interpretive Center: "Chapman’s stunning photographs and gripping prose bring a fresh, new perspective on the Bozeman Trail that will challenge latter-day historians and history buffs to view the Trail with a new set of eyes – one that tells the story from all points of view," believes Jude Carino, director of the NHTIC.
