Medium Digital Book
Narrator Sollars, Jeff.
Annotation Here is the story of the spark that started a war. On June 17, 1877, 109 soldiers and civilian volunteers rode into a deep canyon in the Idaho Territory. Their mission was to attack a small band of Nez Perce camped on the banks of White Bird Creek. In the battle that followed, the numerically inferior Nez Perce fighters inflicted one of the worst defeats ever suffered by the American military during the Indian Wars. This account of the White Bird Battle, from both the Indian and white point of view, is considered by many experts to be one of the best books written on an event from the Western Indian wars.
