Terry C. Johnston

In the summer of 1877, in a place called White Bird Canyon, Nez Perce warriors delivered a stunning blow to the First Cavalry--the worst defeat since the Little Bighorn one year before. Now, General O.O. Howard is charged with hunting down the Nez Perce and defeating them at last. Willing to sacrifice their ancestral homeland, with little understanding of the ways of the mighty U.S. government, the Non-Treaty Nez Perce begin a push out of Idaho for Montana and for peace. But it is too late.For warriors, soldiers, and strategists--and the innocent caught in between--a bloody battlefield awaits, at a place called Big Hole, Montana...
