About this title:

Synopsis:

Organized chronologically and thematically, Encounters with the People is an edited, annotated compilation of unique primary sources related to Nez Perce history--Native American oral histories, diary excerpts, military reports, maps, and more. Generous elders shared carefully-guarded stories, beginning with early Nimiipuu/Euro-American contact and extending through the Treaty of 1855 held at Walla Walla. The editors scoured archives, federal repositories, and museums in search of documents related to regional cultural and environmental history—most published for the first time or found only in obscure sources. This essential reference work is part of the Voices from Nez Perce Country series.

From the Inside Flap:

Organized both chronologically and thematically, Encounters with the People is an edited, annotated compilation of unique primary sources related to Nez Perce history--Native American oral histories, diary excerpts, military reports, maps, and more. Generous elders shared their collective memory of carefully guarded stories passed down through multiple generations. One described the level of attentiveness required to preserve their oral history as “so still to listen that you could hear a bird take a drink of water on the other side of the mountain.” The work begins with early Nimiipuu/Euro-American contact and extends to the period immediately after the Treaty of 1855 held at Walla Walla.

The editors scoured archives, federal document repositories, and state and local historical museums in search of little-known documents related to regional, cultural, and environmental history. Most of the selected material is published for the first time or is found only in obscure sources. Part of the Voices from Nez Perce Country series,Encounters with the People includes a thorough, up-to-date, annotated bibliographical essay by Dr. William Swagerty. Those interested in the Nez Perce, Native American studies, Lewis and Clark, early missionary work, and Inland Northwest settlement will find it an essential reference work.

“These [are] exceedingly valuable documents, most of which have never been published. They will be a lasting contribution for all scholarly research concerning the Nez Perce and the other tribes of the Northwest.”--Deward E. Walker Jr., professor emeritus at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

“In short, Encounters with the People is a major contribution not only to the study of this important native group but also to the history of the Pacific Northwest.”--Elliott West, alumni distinguished professor of history at the University of Arkansas and author of The Last Indian War: The Nez Perce Story.
