BeschreibungAlthough much has been published on the Nez Perce Indians, there have been relatively few scholarly works focusing on the Indians of the Northwest Plateau. This bibliography provides detailed annotations of sources dealing with the Yakima, Palouse, Cayuse, Umatilla, Walla Walla, and Wanapum Indians.
