The Longest Trail: Writings on American Indian History, Culture, and Politics

Cover of The Longest Trail: Writing
by Alvin M. Josephy, Marc Jaffe and Rich Wandschneider

Alvin Josephy Jr.'s groundbreaking, popular books and essays advocated for a fair and true historical assessment of Native Americans, and set the course for modern Native American studies. This collection, which includes magazine articles, speeches, a white paper, and introductions and chapters of books, gives a generous and reasoned view of five hundred years of Indian history in North America from first settlements in the East to the long trek of the Nez Perce Indians in the Northwest.
