    Review quote
    "The story of the [Nez Perces'] escapes, hardships and ultimate defeat makes an epic struggle any Hollywood scriptwriter would admire. In Nez Perce Summer, Jerome A. Greene . . . is precise, even brilliant, in detailing the Nez Perce trail and the military groups that hounded them for weeks."NDenver Post "Jerome A. Greene . . . gives the Nez Perce saga the attention it deserves. . . . Greene's expert treatment is detailed, but his narrative is never boring."NWild West "The flight of Chief Joseph and the Nez Perces across mountain and plain in a quest for Canadian sanctuary is a commanding saga. . . . Applying his exceptional powers of research in breadth and depth, Jerome A. Greene has crafted the most exhaustive history yet published of this story of courage, endurance, pathos, and tragedy. His contribution fills in a wealth of missing detail and immeasurably enriches the extensive literature."NRobert M. Utley, author of The Lance and the Shield: The Life and Times of Sitting Bull"
    Back cover copy
    Nez Perce Summer, 1877 tells the story of a people's epic struggle to survive spiritually, culturally, and physically in the face of unrelenting military force. Written by one of the foremost experts in frontier military history and reviewed by members of the Nez Perce tribe, this definitive treatment of the Nez Perce War is the first to incorporate research from all known accounts of Nez Perce and U.S. military participants.Enhanced by sixteen detailed maps and forty-nine historic photographs, Jerome A. Greene's gripping narrative takes readers on a three-and-a-half-month, 1,700-mile journey across the wilds of Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana territories. All of the skirmishes and battles of the war receive detailed treatment, which benefits from Greene's astute analysis of both sides' strategies and decision making. Between 100 and 150 of the more than 800 Nez Perce men, women, and children who began the trek were killed during the war. Almost as many died in the months following the surrender, after they were exiled to malaria-ridden northwestern Oklahoma. Army deaths numbered 113. The casualties, on both sides, were an extraordinary price for a war that nobody wanted, but whose history has since intrigued generations of Americans.
