The Nez Perce Flight of 1877 symbolizes the dramatic collision of cultures which continues to shape the West and its people. One side of the map provides visitors with an overview of the entire Trail, including information on modern day travel routes and sites to visit along the Trail. The reverse side of the map gives a glimpse back in time and shows how the region looked in 1877. This side, done in shaded relief, not only shows the route followed by the Nez Perce people during the Flight of 1877, but also shows the boundaries of land traditionally used by the Nez Perce and the subsequent changes brought about by the treaties of 1855 and 1863. This side of the map also shows the routes used by the U.S. Army in its pursuit of the non-treaty Nez Perce during the summer of 1877.
