Yellow Wolf: His Own Story

Yellow Wolf: His Own Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press

The Nez Perce campaign is among the most famous in the brief and bloody history of the Indian wars of the West. Yellow Wolf was a contemporary of Chief Joseph and a leader among his own men. His story is one that had never been told and will never be told again. A first person account, through author L.V. McWhorter of the Nez Perce's ill-fated battle for land and freedom.

Synopsis:

Yellow Wolf was one of the last surviving participants of the Nez Perce War. This is his story of the hitherto unrevealed Indian strategy and policy in that conflict as told to L.V. McWhorter, his friend for decades. Many researchers consider this book a classic — one of the first to tell the story of those tragic times from the Native American perspective.

About the Author

Lucullus Virgil McWhorter was born in 1860 ina log cabin in what is now West Virginia.  From his earliest childhood, he was interested in everything pertaining to Indians.  After moving west McWhorter took on the task of writing about the history of the native tribes of the Northwest and battling against the injustices visited upon them by the American government.  L.V. McWhorter died in 1944.
