"Northwestern Indian Fights and Fighters: Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce War & Captain Jack and the Modoc War" by Cyrus Townsend Brady is a history that covers the two most famous Indian Wars of the Northwest----The Nez Pearce War and the Modoc War---in the 1870s.

Cyrus Townsend Brady (1861-1920) was an Episcopal clergyman and historian as well as a novelist. He was graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1883. In 1889, he was ordained a deacon in the Episcopal church and was ordained a priest in 1890.

Brady published over 70 novels, all with an accurate historical basis, many of them based on incidents and historical figures in American history. He also published non fiction histories in a series called "Fights And Fighters." He used many primary sources such as diaries, letters, and journals, both published and unpublished, which made him unusual for popular history authors of his time. He also wrote in clear, simple language that made his books popular; unlike the stuffy verbose prose of the professional historian of his day.

This book, "Northwestern Indian Fights and Fighters: Chief Joseph and the Nez Perce War & Captain Jack and the Modoc War" deals with two of the most famous Indian Wars of the 1870's; that of the Nez Perce and their famous Chief Joseph and the Modoc War led by a Chief called Captain Jack due to his dress in cast off army clothing. Brady does an unusual thing in writing this history. In the first chapter of each history he gives the historians view of the conflict and the course of each war from beginning to end. He then incorporates the writings on each subject by actual eyewitness participants in each war. In this way he adds muscle and sinew to his skeleton of the wars' events. This treatment gives a more complete view of the subject than either the straight historical treatment of the sometimes conflicting view of the participant.

A must-read for those interested in the Indian Wars of the 19th Century. This e-book contains the illustrations Brady used in the original volume.
