Although fairly sympathetic to the Nez Perce cause, the author also can't help cheer for the bravery of Army troops that followed and periodically attacked the retreating bands of warriors with their retinue of family members and enormous horse and cattle herds. The story is a well-documented chapter in the long, sad and violent history of American domination of native peoples. The achievement and near-success of the "non-treaty" Nez Perce who refused forced relocation to a reservation is truly heroic. The book points out the respect that soldiers and officers had for the skill and bravery of Nez Perce warriors, who won many battles against U.S. Cavalry troops. It was only the overwhelming numbers of troops, their artillery and repeating rifles, and the onset of winter that kept the Nez Perce from joining Sitting Bull across the Canadian border. It's a story that every American, and Native American, should know.

Published in 2000, Jerome A. Greene's NEZ PERCE SUMMER, 1877 isn't the most recent work on the Nez Perce tragedy, but it does the best job of combining a detailed, blow-by-blow account with a larger overview of this enormously complex and panoramic event, which stretched over three and a half months in the summer of 1877 and constituted one of the saddest mass injustices in the history of the Indian Wars.

Greene, who wrote the book under the aegis of the National Park Service--it's available online at their website, but I wouldn't recommend reading it that way--is especially good at explaining where things happened in relation to other things that were going on at the same time and what all the parties concerned were doing simultaneously-- an invaluable asset in an account of a military campaign. And his final chapter, "Consquences," does a splendid job of drawing back and fairly and objectively evaluating the outcome and import of the campaign, not only for the Nez Perces but for the American army and also some of the individuals involved. (Which reminds me to say that the backnotes are often as interesting as the book itself.)

There are other good books about the Nez Perce campaign, notably Bruce Hampton's more passionate and journalistic CHILDREN OF GRACE (1994), as well as Mark H. Brown's pathbreaking THE FLIGHT OF THE NEZ PERCE (1967); all three are highly readable. But if you have time for only one, it should probably be Greene's, since Brown's account has been superceded and Hampton's book, though it has many virtues, ultimately leaves you without the grand picture.

In fact, my one major complaint about NEZ PERCE SUMMER, 1877 is that it doesn't provide a timeline (neither do the other two books). This would have helped enormously in getting a handle on the complicated, multi-layered events of the story, and while an author can be excused for failing to realize how important this is for his readers, his editor shouldn't be. Luckily, you can get a great timeline on the Internet, put together--very well, as far as I can see--by Montana schoolchildren! ([...])

Aside from this flaw, NEZ PERCE SUMMER, 1877 is indispensable reading for anyone seeking to understand what it all meant.

I read six books on the Nez Perce War this summer--3 new ones, 2 older ones and this was by far the best and most complete
I am using it for my own historical writing and research and this book is my starting point on other sources and directions. Excellent Scholarship throughout by someone who has done the research and spent the time on the ground and with the sources.

Very helpful re: my research on the Nez Perce flight through Yellowstone. And unlike many research books, it was interesting and readable.
