In this revised edition written by Helen Addison Howard in 1941, the reader is treated to a biography of Chief Joseph and a chronicle of the five bands of the Nez Perce people. Chief Joseph was a master statesman of the Nez Perce in times of war and peace. His true love of the Nez Perce lands and his people led him to constantly strive for dignity and honesty in his pursuit to have his people live on their native land in peace. This addition includes some interesting new material that gives new insight into Chief Joseph as a leader I’ve long had an obsession of reading truthful accounts detailing Native American people in the 1800’s. This book was interesting and I really enjoyed learning things about this era of American History and the Nez Perce people.
Saga of Chief Joseph, Bison Classic Edition by Helen Addison Howard will be available December 1, 2017 from Bison Books, an imprint of the University of Nebraska Press. An egalley of this book was made available by the publisher in exchange for a honest review.
