Chief Joseph/Crazy Horse by Charlie Van Pelt - NEW - 2005
Softbound 7" x 10" 36 pages
A softbound book with images, text and maps to illustrate the important historic sites and stories of these two famous Indian leaders.
This book highlights the locations and events surrounding two Great Indian Leaders: Chief Joseph and Crazy Horse. Chief Joseph and his Nez Perce band were driven from their ancestral homeland in the Wallowa country of northeastern Oregon. The 3-D images trace the route of their 1700-mile flight through Idaho and Montana and their ultimate surrender on October 5, 1877, at the Bear Paw battlefield siteó40 miles short of their goal of sanctuary in Canada.
Crazy Horse was sacred to the Lakota (Teton Sioux) and for some 20 years led various Indian factions in their fight to retain their homelands in the great plains of the upper midwest. His best known, and last major encounter, was the Battle of the Little Bighorn, June 25, 1876. Lt. Col George Custer and his immediate command of 225 men were all killed at Last Stand Hill. The rest of the 7th Cavalry command, led by Major Marcus Reno and Capt. F.W. Benteen, were badly decimated. The five Indian tribes won the battleóbut lost the war. Their final subjugation was swift and complete.
