I remember my grandmother referring to a bright, full, summer moon as a "Comanche Moon"… It was sort of spooky. Now I know why she got kind of quiet and hugged me tightly. I thought I knew Texas history and the war between the indians and the pioneers… this book was an eye opener.

Empire of the Summer Moon spans two astonishing stories. The first traces the rise and fall of the Comanches, the most powerful indian tribe in American History. The second entails on of the most remarkable narratives ever to come out of the Old West: the epic saga of the pioneer woman Cynthia Ann Parker, who was kidnapped by Comanches as a nine-year old girl, and her mixed-blood son Quanah, who became the last greatest chief of the Comanches.
