New Book - Empire of the Summer Moon: Quanah Parker and the Rise and Fall of the Comanches, the Most Powerful Indian Tribe in American History
In this engrossing chronicle, award-winning journalist Gwynne traces the rise of the Comanche people from their roots as primitive bands of hunter-gatherers to their mastery of the horse and emergence as the feared power brokers of the area. At the center of the narrative is the charismatic Quanah Parker, who skillfully navigated the gaps between his traditional culture and the emerging, settled culture of the late-nineteenth century. Quanah was the son of a Comanche warrior and a woman named Cynthia Ann Parker, who was kidnapped at the age of nine and chose to stay with the Comanches. Quanah was a brilliant, feared war chief who guided his people in adapting to new realities after their final suppression by the U.S. Calvary. An outstanding addition to western-history collections.

Order Now! Return: The Parker Story
Return is one of the best known stories of the Southwest--of Cynthia Ann Parker, Quanah Parker, James Parker, Sul Ross, Sam Houston, Isaac Parker, and other members of the Parker family--updated and retold with previously unpublished facts and documents. The names of the participants loom large in the history of Texas and the Southwest. Their response to the challenges they faced lifted them from the ranks of the ordinary, and they have become the subjects of legends which live on today. Return places them center stage, separating fact from fiction, and giving an old story a new life.
