Reviews about The Nez Perce Indians and the Opening of the Northwest (Abridged Edition) (7):
Tenius
The late Mr. Josephy's work is the definitive work on the Nez Perce. Far too often Nez Perce histories misconstrue Chief Joseph's role as a chief in order to emphasis the drama, which undermines the complexity of the Nez Perce interactions with the whites.

This book is a comprehensive telling of a great people's history. I recommend it to any historian or lover of history of the Pacific Northwest.

The best and most in depth and informative and encompassing book on the North American Indian experience. It is heartwrenching and a wonderful read.
Uafrmaine
The appalling treatment of the Nez Perces is a sordid and shameful chapter in the modern history of the Pacific Northwest. Mr. Josephy carefully and meticulously describes the downfall of this peaceful and friendly people. His account begins slowly, but it accelerates with the momentum of a huge steam engine and thunders to a climax that left me in tears.

This is a fantastic book. If anyone wants to learn anything about the Nez Perce, this is absolutely the right book.
Good book. I bought it because one of the historical events occurred on my Grandfather's cattle ranch. Wish more of the book was devoted to it, but I don't think anyone else would care. Recommended.
