“Thunder in the Mountains,” by Daniel J. Sharfstein. In the mood for history of the American West? This is the account of Chief Joseph, Oliver Otis Howard, and the Nez Perce War of 1877.

This is a compelling narrative about freedom and equality, the reach and limits of government, and the creation of legends.
