In 1836, when she was nine years old, Cynthia Ann Parker was kidnapped by Comanche Indians. This is the story of how she grew up with them, mastered their ways, married one of their leaders, and became, in every way, a Comanche woman. It is also the story of a proud and innocent people whose lives pulsed with the very heartbeat of the land. It is the story of a way of life that is gone forever....
Cynthia's story shows she had a better life with the Comanche than with her white family. Her son, Quanah Parker, became a religious and political leader.Published 2 days ago by Linda S. Monroe
