My partner read it first and he was totally engrossed. I am now reading it and also find all of the facts fascinating. I thoroughly enjoy it. Written so well it flows beautifully, not like a normal non-fiction book

Well worth reading. Descriptions and history of the west and Texas from 1800's to 1900 is compelling. Tells the story of the changes in the lives of the Comanche nation and the last chief who led them, Quanah Parker. He was the son of a pioneer woman camed Cynthia Parker who was kidnapped during a Comanche raid and who grows up with the tribe.

I enjoyed this book. Even though I don't live in
Texas, this is all about early Texas history. Starts around the time of the kidknapping of Cynthia Ann Parker, Quanah's mother.
