The Appaloosa horses bred by Chief Joseph’s Nez Perce Indians were the finest anywhere. The Army wanted to get its hands on the herd—so it could breed up top-quality remounts.

Jim Sundance had no intention of letting Drury or the Army get their hands on the horses and that meant there was a fight looming that could end in bloody slaughter.
