Through Novembers Winter Air, The Indian Cries: The Most Powerful Indian Story in American History. In this audiobook I have tried to make a faithful representation of Quanah Parker, his background and associates; to give an understanding portrayal of his life and work. Historical material has been carefully studied and followed, checked with members of the family; and I have a personal acquaintance with much of the territory and some of the particular places involved. However, it has been necessary, especially in the earlier part, to reconstruct the story from the little that was known, much as the paleontologist frames the skeleton of some prehistoric dinosaur from the bones that have been dug up.

audio addict! Mostly interested in history and some historical fiction. Will Durant is my all time favorite. Loving the Great Courses too.
This is an extraordinary collection of stories about the life and times of the great Comanche chief Quannah Parker. The stories range in topics such as his mother's kidnapping, Quannah's childhood, the ways of the Comanche and Quannah's relationship with US Govt on behalf of his people.
I can't praise the collection enough. The author used sources, such as Quannah's own son, and other sources which would forever be unavailable to us as years separate us from Quannah's life.
Excellent book. Great narrator. Highly recommended!
