Chief Joseph was a great Nez Perce chief, warrior, and activist for his people. He tried to protect his people from the US government encroaching on the land they lived on, but the US government was too strong.

This book is written in short, simple sentences, so that the information is easily accessible by younger children. It has color illustrations as well as old photographs on every page. Interspersed with Chief Joseph's story is information on the lives of current Nez Perce people and how they live. There is a table of contents, time line, glossary, index, and page for further information. Ages 7 - 11.

Long before colonists settled in America, Native American tribes lived there.  They built their homes and set up their governments.  Throughout white history, however, white settlers forced many of these tribes to leave their land.
