NANCY PLAIN. With One Sky Above Us:  The Story of Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce Indians. Mondo Publications. 79 pages; paperback, $8.00; mondopub.com.

Chief Joseph’s Nez Perce tribe had lived in the American Northwest for thousands of years before white people came there to settle. In the 1870s, when the U.S. Army tried to force the tribe onto a reservation, the Nez Perce fought for their homeland and then their freedom, on a desperate flight towards Canada.  Chief Joseph was a courageous leader in this struggle, which culminated in his famous words, “I will fight no more forever.”
