Working the Range: Essays on the History of Western Land Management and the Environment

By John R. Wunder | Go to book overview

Navajo would have soon attempted an escape en masse, as did other Indian groups. If so, the Treaty of 1868 saved the Navajo from the fate which met the Nez Percé, Comanche, and other Indian nations. Thus, the Navajo were able to begin a new, more prosperous life in their regained ancestral home.
