This Day in History
The Trail That Leaves None

In the last days of the Indian wars in the West, the tribes’ diminishing numbers forced them to rely upon inherited and harshly learned skills in order to survive off reservations. In fleeing from cavalrymen, the wise Indian leaders such as Looking Glass and Chief Joseph were skillful at traversing great distances without leaving easy-to-follow trails.
