NATIONAL BESTSELLER * The story of Cynthia Ann Parker and the last days of the Comanche

In 1836, when she was nine years old, Cynthia Ann Parker was kidnapped by Comanche Indians from her family's settlement.

She grew up with them, mastered their ways, and married one of their leaders. Except for her brilliant blue eyes and golden mane, Cynthia Ann Parker was in every way a Comanche woman. They called her Naduah--Keeps Warm With Us. She rode a horse named Wind.

This is her story, the story of a proud and innocent people whose lives pulsed with the very heartbeat of the land. It is the story of a way of life that is gone forever.

It will thrill you, absorb you, touch your soul, and make you cry as you celebrate the beauty and mourn the end of the great Comanche nation.

The greatest book EVER!! I’ve read this at least 10 times and always buy copies for others to enjoy. It’s a great history lesson and an awesome love story. Yes, it contains a couple graphic scenes but this is based on fact, after all. Great, great read!

Disgusting filth! No way can I stomach reading one after another after another graphic rape scene!

Pure garbage.There are countless decent books waiting to be read,so no way would I recommend anyone pollute their minds with this filth!

I read this book in the early 1990's and it has been one of my all time favorite books ever!
