"I Will Fight No More Forever," Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce War, by Merrill D. Beal

"In this superb summation of the ethnohistory of the (Nez Perce) tribe containing also careful analyses of the military campaigns and political events and a wholly balanced review of facts, opinions, and previous evaluations of the situation and circumstances which have colored the evidence, we have what seems to be the last word....Chief Joseph and his fellows emerge as human beings motivated by the sound requirements of nationalism in defeat, and the white man, both soldier and civilian, appears as a character expression of natural power evoking both good and evil in the pursuit of manifest destiny. A fine book, with some excellent photographs of the protagonists, long sections of notes, and an extensive bibliography. Recommended as the best book about American Indian history published in the last few year. " --Library Journal
