Read full description of the books:
Chief Joseph of the Nez Perce: A Poem is a poem about the rise and fall of the Chief of Nez Perce. I thought it was an interesting story about a tribe of Native Americans who stood up against the United States Army to keep their land. I liked how Robert Warren took written statements (well I hope they were true statements), and intertwined them into his poem. I was hooked to the story, but I wasn't impressed with the poem. I felt like it was more of a short story instead of a poem, but I am no poet. I guess it wasn't my style of poem, but I thought it was interesting enough.
Well, happy reading!
