The focus of S.C. Gwynne’s superbly written Empire of the Summer Moon is the great Comanche chief Quanah Parker and the life of his mother, Cynthia Ann (Audah) Parker, a white woman. Equally fascinating is the book’s history of the Southwest and the Comanches’ long resistance to Western settlers and the Texas Rangers.
