Promise: Bozeman's Trail To Destiny (HC)

Click to enlarge

What better way to tell this story than for a writer and photographer of Serle Chapman's caliber to join with the descendents of those who traveled and fought on the Bozeman Trail. Chief Alfred Red Cloud, a great-grandson of Chief Red Cloud, for the first time in publication, presents the Red Cloud family’s oral history of "Red Cloud’s War" to close the Bozeman Trail. "Serle Chapman is one of the few who really knows the history of Chief Red Cloud and I pay tribute to him and this work," says Chief Alfred Red Cloud. Promise: Bozeman’s Trail to Destiny has already been endorsed by the US government’s National Historic Trails Interpretive Center: "Chapman’s stunning photographs and gripping prose bring a fresh, new perspective on the Bozeman Trail that will challenge latter-day historians and history buffs to view the Trail with a new set of eyes – one that tells the story from all points of view," believes Jude Carino, director of the NHTIC.
