Synopsis: This extraordinary new look at Lewis and Clark among the Nez Perce represents a breakthrough in Lewis and Clark studies. Lewis and Clark Among the Nez Perce is the first richly detailed exploration of the relationship between Mr. Jefferson’s Corps of Discovery and a single tribe.

James Ronda’s groundbreaking Lewis and Clark Among the Indians (1984) reversed the lens for the first time, to look broadly at the Lewis and Clark expedition through the Native American point of view.

Nearly three decades later, Nez Perce historians Allen V. Pinkham and Steven Ross Evans have examined the journals of Lewis and Clark with painstaking care to tease out new insights from what Lewis and Clark wrote about their Nez Perce hosts. Pinkham and Evans evaluate both what Lewis and Clark understood and what they misunderstood in the Nez Perce (Nimiipuu) lifeway and political structure. More particularly they have re-examined the journals for clues about how the Nez Perce reacted to the bearded strangers. They have also gathered together and put into print for the first time the stands of a surprisingly rich Nez Perce oral tradition.

Lewis and Clark Among the Nez Perce is a generous and careful re-evaluation of what we all thought we knew about Lewis and Clark west of the Bitterroot Mountains. It is also a template for a series of tribal histories of the Lewis and Clark expedition that will be inspired by this book. Incidents we thought we knew backward and forward suddenly take on a new light when the historical lens is reversed.

About the Author: Allen V. Pinkham served in the United States Marine Corps and later earned a two-year degree from Lower Columbia College, in Longview, Washington. Following a long career in the private sector, he moved back to the Nez Perce Reservation and dedicated himself to serving the public as a story-telling educator-author and serving also for nine years (1981-1990) on the Nez Perce Tribal Executive Committee. He co-authored, with Dan Landeen, the book, Salmon and His People, and wrote a chapter for Alvin Josephy’s, Lewis and Clark through Indian Eyes. He also served on the National Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Council, and helped create the Chief Joseph Foundation, a cultural support organization for tribal youth. He was also on the Board of Trustees for the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. He currently lives at Lenore, Idaho.

Book Description University of Oklahoma Press, Norman, 2013. Hardcover. Condition: New. 332 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. New book. NATIVE AMERICANS. This extraordinary new look at Lewis and Clark among the Nez Perce represents a breakthrough in Lewis and Clark studies. With the publication of Lewis and Clark Among the Nez Perce, we have our first opportunity for a richly detailed exploration of the relationship between Mr. Jefferson's Corps of Discovery and a single tribe. James Ronda's groundbreaking Lewis and Clark Among the Indians (1984) reversed the lens for the first time, to look broadly at the Lewis and Clark expedition through the Native American point of view.

It is also a template for a series of tribal histories of the Lewis and Clark expedition that will be inspired by this book. Incidents we thought we knew backwards and forwards suddenly take on a new light when the historical lens is reversed, and the reader begins to understand what the extended visit of Lewis and Clark meant to their hostsÑapproximately four months of daily interchange with a community of Indians the white visitors regarded as especially friendly, hospitable, and helpful to the success of the expedition. 52 black and white Illustrations, 5 maps.

Hoxie is Swanlund Professor of American Social and Political History at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the author, with Jay T. Nelson, of Lewis and Clark and the Indian Country. "More than two centuries after Lewis and Clark entered the world of western native peoples, we at last have a full account of that encounter from an Indian perspective. The view is from the Nez Perces, the people who saved the Corps of Discovery, who became the republic's firm allies and who, seven decades later, were ravaged in the nation's final, and most shameful, Indian war. From the tiniest details to the widest understanding of events, this book tells the familiar story with a freshness and authenticity that sets it apart from the scores of others before it."Ñ Dr. Elliott West, Professor, University of Arkansas "This is the way that history should be written; rich in prose, exquisitely researched, and based on Nez Perce ethnohistory that adds a wealth of information to the almost tireless records of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. American Indian voices, cultures, societies, and responses to Lewis and Clark have almost been overwhel. book. Seller Inventory # 83381X1
