Book Review: Empire of The Summer Moon, Quanah Parker and the Rise and Fall of the Comanches the Most Powerful Indian Tribe in American History by S. C. Gwynne

In the desolate plains area of west Texas, a boy who's mother was Nautdah or Cynthia Ann Parker and his father was Pete Nocona, grew up to become a powerful Comanche chief. From the mid 1700's until about 1850 the Comanche's ruled the southern plains. They were greatly feared by both the Spanish and white settler's that came to inhabit Texas. It would be a long battle between the Comanche's and the white military. At the end of the bitter war the Comanche's would be faced with living on land that was not "fit" for white settlers, and eating foods that were not palatable for any human. But, for a time, the Comanche's had been the most powerful Indian tribe in American History.
