"The central truth of their lives was the past, the dimming memory of the wild, ecstatic freedom of the plains...of a world without property or boundaries." - from Chapter 22

S.C. Gwynne writes an entertaining and comprehensive book about an amazing and tragic piece of American history previously unknown to me. Highly recommended.
This book details the rise of the Comanche, the most powerful military force on the southern plains for decades, and centers around war chief Quanah Parker and his navigation between his traditional culture and the culture of settlers.
