The tragedy of the Nez Perce War of 1877 is examined through the actions of Tribal Chief Joseph and Army General O.O. Howard. (Howard was living in Portland when the war began.) Very interesting. Among other things the Nez Perce passed through Yellowstone National Park, and went shopping at stores while on their journey.

Guides and Indexes to Oregon Publications
Search the Oregon Newspaper Index which indexes over 845,000 articles in the Oregonian newspaper from 1851-1987. This index is maintained by the University of Oregon.
The OREGON INDEX is a list of over 700,000 file cards, listing articles and publications that had information related to Oregon. It started in the early 20th century and continued into the 1980s, when it was computerized. (See below for that.) The Oregon State Library has made a searchable scan of those 700,000 cards, which you can find at https://digital.osl.state.or.us/islandora/object/osl:or_index
The index tells you where these articles can be found...you will have to track down the publications after talking to a librarian on how to do it.
