Overview

With the wars between the US and the Native Americans drawing to a close, one tribe in Eastern Oregon continued to resist. The Nez Perce, led by the 'Red Napoleon' Chief Joseph, refused to surrender and accept resettlement. Instead, Chief Joseph organized a band of 750 warriors and set off for the Canadian border, pursued by 2,000 US Army troops under Major-General Oliver Howard. The army chased the natives for three months, fighting 13 actions. Finally, just 40 miles from the Canadian border, the Army ran Chief Joseph to the ground, and forced him to surrender after a five-day battle near Bear Paw Mountain.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The text is enhanced by full-color illustrations by Peter Dennis. The artwork is complemented by more than 60 photographs obtained from the U.S. Army Military History Institute, the U.S. Cavalry Museum at Fort Riley, the Nez Perce National
Historic Park and the Montana Historical Society. Totaling 96 pages, this book is a concise and informative account of the last major U.S. act of war against Indians."
-Toy Soldier & Model Figure (May 2011)

"Nez Perce 1877: The Last Fight provides a fine addition to Osprey's "Campaign" series, detailing command strategies and tactics, and covers the Nez Perce, who refused to surrender and accept resettlement. Instead, Chief Joseph organized some 750 warriors and ran the Canadian border - and nearly made it. Black and white and color photos and maps throughout illustrated by Peter Dennis enhance an outstanding survey!" -The Midwest Book Review
