Summary The Dying Grass A Novel of the Nez Perce War

William T. Vollmann à 2 Summary Read & download ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free à William T. Vollmann Summary The Dying Grass A Novel of the Nez Perce War In this new installment in his series of novels examining the collisions between Native Americans and European colonizers William T Vollmann tells the story of the Nez Perce War with flashbacks to the Civil War Defrauded and intimidated at every turn the Nez Perces finally went on the warpath in 1877 subjecting the. This fifth volume of Vollman s planned Seven Dreams series was very rewarding to me in the long run but at 1300 plus pages it took a commitment euivalent to reading four ordinary books That kind of reminds me how in grade school I would brag how I read a great book probably about ants and gesture it was this thick But if you are going to take a journey into the hearts and minds of European Americans and Native Americans at war it makes sense that it might take a long time to elucidate the full storyHow was it that General Otis Howard the Christian general who worked so hard to advance the opportunities for emancipated slaves after the Civil War he was a commissioner of the ill fated Freedman s Bureau and co founder of Howard University could lead a bloody campaign to fulfill a robbery of the land of the Nez Perce tribe How was it that this tribe such peaceful friends with the white man starting with Lewis and Clarke at the beginning of the century would not go meekly onto a reservation and instead end up fighting back so desperately The Long Chase For modern people who feel bad from a distance over the tragedy of the brutal US policies to get rid of or otherwise contain the pesky Indians there is a bit of romantic reprieve in the tale of a band of about 250 warriors accompanied with perhaps 500 family members leading about 2000 soldiers on a 1200 plus mile chase over three months while fighting effectively in intervals along the way Over four pitched battles and several skirmishes the losses amounted to about 150 were killed on each side which is small on the scale of atrocities and slower adversity induced deaths that comprise the overall sweep of actions that fit most definitions of genocide Still the Nez Perce War continues to capture our imagination and is subject to a national park and a national historic trail Treat yourself to this folksong Heart of the Appaloosa YouTube by Fred Small to tap into a source of pride and tears in the mythic heroics of the tribe and Chief Joseph with accompanying images composed by school kids I was pleasantly surprised to find the link cited in the Wiki history Nez Perce homeland and route of their fighting retreatAlien CommunicationsThis well researched historical novel dispels sentimentality in such a song with intense efforts at realism Provocations in the form of brutal murders of the innocent are revealed by both whites and Indians That the majority on both sides of the conflict were sincerely interested in peaceful dignified solutions adds to a sense of tragedy and at the same time begs the uestion of why the human race continues year after year to escalate differences and crimes of individuals into murder and war between peoples This appears to be a huge subject of interest for Vollman which I learn from other readers reporting back on his Rising Up and Rising Down a massive effort to elucidate a sort of moral algebra to account for the causes and ethics of violence With his Seven Dreams series which started in 1990 with a fictional account of Viking incursions over a millennium ago he plumbs the history of the European conuest of North America to glean meaning in the imagined evolution of relations between the invaders and indigenous peoples Given that the peoples in the New World were on their own path for 10 20 thousand years before the Europeans arrived I am struck how their differences are so extreme as to resemble a cultural collision between alien species The difficulties in communication between the tribe and US Army members have a lot to do with the events that unfolded Very few individuals could speak each other s language In one sense the overall motivation of the Nez Perce to live in freedom and autonomy and that of the whites as a whole to take their land and exploit its resources needs little translation to comprehend the irreconcilable differences Regardless the take me to your leader mentality coincides with a problem of picking an unrepresentative leader to negotiate an behalf of the diverse bands of the tribe The coerced 1855 treaty that reduced their land from 13 million acres to 75 million acres spanning parts of Washington Oregon and Idaho Territories was followed in 1863 by an agreement with a Christianized subset of the tribe to sell 90% of that land for a pittance leaving only 750000 acres in Idaho A number of bands non treaty Nez Perce refused to comply with the thief treaty and violent conflicts between them and invading settlers and miners led General Sherman by 1877 to order General Howard to force their removal to the reservation The way Vollman presents it most were ready to comply but the disrespect and overnight jailing of one old chief set a trio of young bucks to commit atrocities on a few settlers in their rage and bravado Despite Howard s efforts to act with restraint the next step in escalation was for some of his soldiers and civilian volunteers in his force to open fire with no provocation on members of one band already committed to comply with the order that led by Chief Looking Glass A chief problem in communication seen in all conflicts with Indians from colonial times is to attribute the actions of unruly individuals on both sides to the tribe or colonial people as a whole Here every depredation by individual Indians or canny stratagem in battle is attributed by the army as due to Joseph and for the converse the Indians see aggressive actions by whites as effectively carried out by Howard whom they refer to as Cut Arm due to arm he lost to injury in the Union defeat at Chancellorsville In fact Joseph was such a pacifist he served essentially as a camp chief throughout this campaign important as a moral center for the tribe but responsible mainly for logistics and assuring the safety of the women and children And Howard struggled mightily to get consistent professional service out of his captains lieutenants civilian volunteers and Indian guides His Christian charity and teetotling ways were almost universally despised The desecration of Nez Perce bodies by their Bannock Indian contingent and by souvenir hunters among the whites was a major affront to the spiritual beliefs of the Nez Perce and key element of pervasive mistrust any promises on the part of HowardThe narrative alternates between perspectives of the Indians and that of their pursuers with the cast of characters reaching perhaps a couple dozen Through some innovative ways of rendering his prose Vollman layers present events conveyed largely through dialog with indented lines to reach into the characters unspoken perceptions emotions memories thoughts of distant families and recent visits to a brothel It takes some getting used to as racist and misogynist attitudes jealousies fears and egotistical reveries bubble up between the regular military forms of discourse among the soldiers The Civil War both Union and Seccesh experiences figures prominently in the minds of many and anger over the disaster for Custer at the Battle of Little Bighorn in the previous year is common That the Nez Perce did not participate in the pan Indian call for war by Lakota Chief Sitting Bull means less than the treacheries experienced in their recent rounding up of the Modocs in California For the Indians I give a lot of credit to Vollman s courage and imagination to try to render their uniue cultural and spiritual outlook in their daily lives and relationship with the natural world including elements of their language Horses go himini and crickets speak aikh aikh The two wives of Joseph are incredibly industrious in diverse activities such as child care tending horses gathering herbs preparing camas roots or game for meals and making his member grow long as a deer neck Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places Historical relations with other tribes and with particular sites in the west also figure largely in the Indian s mental concerns As they pass though their beloved haunts perhaps for the last time they try to settle on where to seek refuge In the lands of the Salish and Crow tribes they find they are not welcome enough for long friendships to outweigh the risk of facing war with the US Army Could an enemy of their enemies make for friendship with a traditional enemy They pin their hopes on crossing Montana and joining up with Sitting Bull and the Lakotas who successfully escaped to Canada However Howard s old friend from Civil War days Colonel Miles traveling from a northern fort along with Cheyenne scouts was able to trap the Nez Perce 90 miles from the Canadian border While about 400 surrendered perhaps 200 did escape to Canada including Joseph s daughter This ending of the long chase was particularly moving in Vollman s rendering He doesn t bother with repeating the iconic speech rendered as ending with Hear me my chiefs I am tired My heart is sick and sad From where the sun now stands I will fight no forever He seems to have doubts about the accuracy of translation and amplifying a comment into a speechHoward s End and Picking Up the Pieces Vollman has a mission of making the reader as interested in Howard as Joseph Seeing Joseph as a special hero is fulfillment of hope a guilt assuaging fantasy while Howard holds great potential for surprise How to judge him as a hero or a villain The compulsion to think that way is because of the situation we are stuck with now for problems in relations between the dominant culture aka white folks and their emulators its my government in relation to the Indians Thomas King s The Inconvenient Indian was a wonder for me in confirming the continuity from destructive national Indian policies in the 19th century through phases of merely repressive policies to the current uagmires on the issues such as sovereignity resource exploitation and survival of cultural identity I know there was virtually no political way to stop the settlers and the economic interests of the government from taking as much away from the Indians as possible But still we must want to see a person of the time trying to achieve a humane outcome for Howard to have a enlightened moral calculus If Howard was an essential part of the machine to effect a drastic constraint on the fate of the Nez Perce his aim was at least to effect a humane implementation of what was inevitable in his mind His expectation was that the few murderers of women and children would be hung and the rest peaceably moved to the reservation Miles took the credit for ending the war and he had no say over the sad fate of the survivors His success in talking the Apache chief Cochise into surrendering was similarly undermined by the later revival of the war by Geronimo I am left with ambivalent feelings about Howard Hampton Side left me feeling the same way about Kit Carson in his wonderful history of an Indian lover he even married an Indian who ended up perpetrating a devastating death march in the removal of the Navaho from their sacred lands Blood and Thunder I end up most admiring Howard for his military feat of moving his forces so long through countless adversities against a worthy and respected opponentGone are those days but there is no benefit just to say drive on that was then and this is now Today the courageous task is to make something meaningful come out of what are called Truth and Reconciliation Commissions like what is taking place in my current home of Maine There is plenty of good food for thought in deep examination of past sources of what Indians I have known refer to as cultural trauma I admire Vollman for demonstrating how his idea for a dream can use invention to tell truths that a sketchy account based on known history can t He shares some on his intentions and their factual origins in his extensive sections of notes and sources chronologies and glossaries His 200 pages of extras also includes an extensive section of historical follow ups on people and tribes Throughout the book is graced with hand drawn maps and images of plants In other words the book is an extravaganza I was glad to be loaned an e book version from Penguin Viking through the Netgalley program publication date July 28 I know the hardcopy book will be attractive to some of my friends but I can t guess who Surely there will be readers than those who took on the seriously longer book Rising Up and Rising Down After enjoying so much Philbrick s account of the first 100 years of the Plymouth Colony in Mayflower I think his 2001 dream book Argall on the settlement of Jamestown is my best bet for a next read by this masterful author
