The book about Chief Joseph (1840-1905) is broken up into three sections: I. Starting out from the Meany Papers. II. Chief Joseph of the Nez Perces, A Chronology. III. White Witnesses to Chief Joseph's End, A Narrative. It includes many excellent historic pictures and interviews. Chief Joseph was in turn a war chief and a peace maker. In spite of the Nez Perces miserable treatment at the hands of the white man, helped engineer a truce and then peace.
