In 1836, when she was nine years old, Cynthia Ann Parker was kidnapped by Comanche Indians. This is the story of how she grew up with them, mastered their ways, married one of their leaders, and became, in every way, a Comanche woman. It is also 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....
I loved this book. Robson did a wonderful job of telling this story. I fell in love with Wanderer, Naduah, their children, her Indain family & friends. I learned things I didn't know. I cried at all the sarrow, I felt her pride as she carried Wanderer's War Lance, her pride in everything she did for the 25 yrs she lived with the People. I felt her pain when she was recaptured by the whites & returned to her white family. I think this story is beautifully told & you can see the hard work and research that went into it. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.
