Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No one captures the glory, adventure, and drama of the courageous men and women who tamed the American West like award-winning, bestselling author Terry C. Johnston. His Plainsmen series brims with colorful characters, fierce battles, and compelling historical lore.

LAY THE MOUNTAINS LOW

In the summer of 1877, in a place called White Bird Canyon, Nez Perce warriors delivered a stunning blow to the First Cavalry—the worst defeat since the Little Bighorn one year before. Now, General O.O. Howard is charged with hunting down the Nez Perce and defeating them at last. Willing to sacrifice their ancestral homeland, with little understanding of the ways of the mighty U.S. government, the Non-Treaty Nez Perce begin a push out of Idaho for Montana and for peace. But it is too late. For warriors, soldiers, and strategists—and the innocent caught in between—a bloody battlefield awaits, at a place called Big Hole, Montana...

“Rich and fascinating…There is a genuine flavor of the period and of the men who made it what it was.”—Washington Post Book World
