CHILDREN OF GRACE: THE NEZ PERCE WAR OF 1877
Published by Henry Holt and Company. 1st. 1994
Slightly better than very good condition in a slightly better than very good dustwrapper. This story captures the plight of the common soldier, a reluctant instrument of a government policy gone wrong; and the reason behind the indecisiveness of General Howard. Also includes the treachery of fellow Native Americans who helped the U.S. Army block the escape of the Nex Perce as the fled toward Canada. A harrowing picture of bravery and horror, perfidy and pathos. Black cloth spine with gilt title, peach paper boards. Endpapers are maps. B/w photos.
Top edge of front board bumped. Minor foxing to top edge of text block. Name in ink to first page. Pictorial dustwrapper is slightly faded to spine.
