Description

At the age of nine, Cynthia Ann Parker was captured in an Indian raid and taken to
live as a slave with the Comanche. Twenty-four years later, she is the wife of a chief
and the mother of a young warrior destined to become the great chief Quanah Parker.
But in 1861, Parker and her infant daughter are recaptured and returned against their
will to a white settlement. This moving story is a riveting examination of the conflicts
between Native Americans and white settlers.
