Let Me Be Free
An acclaimed historian tells the wrenching story of the Nez Perce tribe's three-and-a-half-month, 1,700-mile odyssey in 1877 through Idaho, Wyoming, and the Montana plains. Throughout, they waged a heroic series of fighting retreats, repeatedly holding off numerically superior Army forces. A heart-breaking epic of violent betrayal. Photographs.
