The American West: Chiefs and Generals
>

Today, we take you on a breathtaking journey across the American continent from the Southeast and Osceola, the Seminole Chief, to the Mojave in Southeastern California, to the indomitable Nez Perce of E. Washington, Idaho, and Montana to the tough Modoc tribe which lived east of Mt. Shasta and tried the U.S. Army in the 1870's from its lava-bed fortress, ending with Alfred Kroeber's 'last wild man' in North America. Indeed, at Berkeley there was a movement to rename a building 'Ishi Hall...' You'll also see the neat orderly rows of General Custer's camp near the little Bighorn River.
Just go here. It's ad-free. Go
