In this new installment in his acclaimed series of novels examining the collisions between Native Americans and European colonizers, William T. Vollmann tells the story of the Nez Perce War, with flashbacks to the Civil War. Defrauded and intimidated at every turn, the Nez Perces finally went on the warpath in 1877, subjecting the U.S. Army to its greatest defeat since Little Big Horn as they fled from northeast Oregon across Montana to the Canadian border. Vollmann?s main character is not the legendary Chief Joseph, but his pursuer, General Oliver Otis Howard, the brave, shy, tormented, devoutly Christian Civil War veteran. In this novel, we see him as commander, father, son, husband, friend, and killer.… (mere)

This is the very best book ever published as far as I know on any of the Indian Wars. A unbelievable amount of detail. This author is the most productive nonfiction author that has ever lived. If Robert Caro wrote this fast he would have finished his series on LBJ decades ago. ( )

Indeed we are setting fire; we are burning the dying grass; we shall kill these Bluecoats as they have killed our people; we shall catch them all on fire.


Mighty brave, seeing you still here, son. Not many in a proper mind would keep pushing, over 1200 pages. Means you got "sand".

Do you pray, young Reader? Do you see the celestial dynamics unfolding in our triumph?

What's that, you mumbling? Can't stand that: enunciate, D____n you.

That weary ache from holdin' and reading? Son, that's admiration.

See, son, I wanted balance and to uphold that fluidity and follow the facts, I had to digress as well as maintain -- for the full duration. Uncle Billy would agree. Don't forget General Sherman ain't no war criminal, because we are winners. This train is bound for Glory -- not the Hague, mind you. We have Progress in our hearts and I remain ever so thankful that you've lugged around this tome this past month. Dismissed.

Likely 3.5 stars. I was hoping for more Authorial intrusion and hoodwinks. Where are you Blind One?

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you to NetGalley for this amazing book! William T. Vollman's latest installment in his Dream series is a long, delicious read, and his ability to take you into a different time was a huge part of this book for me. To look into the world of the Nez Perce and their relationship to their land is fascinating. Recommended for any reader of historical fiction. ( )
