AT the urgent request of some of my friends I have written this simple little narrative of life, for more than twenty-seven years, among the Nez Perces. In preparation of the narrative I have used articles which already have appeared in our church magazines. I gratefully acknowledge help received from Elder Billy Williams, a Nez Perces Indian, from Gray's His tory of Oregon, Rocky Mountains, by Lewis and Clark, Indian Missions by Myron Eells, records by Rev. H. H. Spalding, also a magazine article by Rev. G. L. Deffenbaugh.
