From Booklist:

Ages 5-8. The third entry in the series A First Americans Book introduces the Chopunnish tribe, nicknamed Nez Perc{‚}e (pierced nose) by French-Canadian trappers because some tribal members wore an ornament between their nostrils. Using a format similar to The Sioux and The Navajos , Sneve begins with a Chopunnish creation story, followed by descriptions of daily life and an abbreviated history. Himler's paintings beautifully enhance the text, which concludes with part of Chief Joseph's well-known speech "I Shall Fight No More Forever," which he gave when he surrendered. Karen Hutt
