about this item

Journalist S.C. Gwynne takes a novel approach to further unraveling the always enthralling, yet contentious, myth of the founding of the American West, using the half-white/half-Comanche chief Quanah Parker and his mother, Cynthia Ann Parker, to explore the largely forgotten Texas-Indian Wars, which lasted nearly the entirety of the 19th century. Spun with a vivid, occasionally thrilling narrative style, EMPIRE OF THE SUMMER MOON describes how the fierce, dogged pride of the mighty Comanche tribe led to epic clashes with white settlers on the Texas plains and hindered for four decades America's initial attempts to bring the new and intoxicating theory of manifest destiny westward.
