The Last Indian War: The Nez Perce Story by Elliott West
The Last Indian War: The Nez Perce Story (Pivotal Moments in American History). Elliott West, Oxford University Press, 2011.
This newest volume in Oxford's acclaimed Pivotal Moments series offers an unforgettable portrait of the Nez Perce War of 1877, the last great Indian conflict in American history. It was, as Elliott West shows, a tale of courage and ingenuity, of desperate struggle and shattered hope, of short-sighted government action and a doomed flight to freedom.
