Amazing, exciting, touching and depressing. What a read! Mostly a history of the struggle for the vast plains, with two biographies, of mother and son, each brief but wrenching and each involving a remarkable cultural leap, in opposite directions.
A fascinating historical account of the plains indians, and the Comanches in particular.
Brutal, honest, and filled with facts and explanations of the why and wherefore of all aspects of indian life and their white pursuers, which eventually results in their subversion.
Hard to put down!
maybe the most informative historical accounts of the Comanches that I have ever read.It gave me a different perspective about these people and their importance as the major plains tribes.I will keep it at hand and read it often!Truly a great read!
Quanah Parker's story is well told. He played an important role in the final years of the Comanche nation. At the same time when he recognized the scope of the European migration that was far stronger and more advanced in technology and resources than his people could ever rest he lead his people towards more education. When I was student at Okla. State Univ. I was living in a new dormitory that the powers that be were reluctant to name and simply called it Dorm-B. The residents took it on them selves to find a name and chose Quanah Parker Hall. The residents cheated their mailing addresses to Parker Hall and soon all the mail was coming to that address and eventually the University officially changed the name. Then the Parker family brought in a picture and mounted it in the lobby.
