Review

"Transcendent . . . "Empire of the Summer Moon" is nothing short of a revelation . . . will leave dust and blood on your jeans."--"New York Times Book Review"

"In "Empire of the Summer Moon", Sam Swynne has given us a rich, vividly detailed rendering of an important era in our history and of two great men, Quanah Parker and Ranald Slidel Mackenzie, whose struggles did much to define it."

-Larry McMurtry

"S.G. Gwynne's "Empire of the Summer Moon" is many things--a thrilling account of the Texas frontier in the nineteenth century, a vivid description of the Comanche nation, a fascinating portrait of Cynthia Ann Parker and her son, the mysterious, magnificent Quanah--but most of all it is a ripping good read. Gwynne writes history with a pounding pulse and a beating heart. In "Empire of the Summer Moon" he's given us an epic frontier peopled with real men and women, living and dying and hoping and dreaming at the bloody edge of civilization. I couldn't put it down."
--Jake Silverstein, Editor, "Texas Monthly," and author of "Nothing Happened and Then It Did"

"S.G. Gwynne s "Empire of the Summer Moon" is many things a thrilling account of the Texas frontier in the nineteenth century, a vivid description of the Comanche nation, a fascinating portrait of Cynthia Ann Parker and her son, the mysterious, magnificent Quanah but most of all it is a ripping good read. Gwynne writes history with a pounding pulse and a beating heart. In "Empire of the Summer Moon" he s given us an epic frontier peopled with real men and women, living and dying and hoping and dreaming at the bloody edge of civilization. I couldn t put it down."

--Jake Silverstein, Editor, Texas Monthly, and author of Nothing Happened and Then It Did"

"Sam Gwynne is a master story-teller and a dogged reporter, and in this book he makes history come to life in a way that everyone -- not just students of the Texas myth -- will find irresistible. I couldn't put it down."
--Evan Smith, CEO and Editor in Chief, The Texas Tribune

"S.G. Gwynne's Empire of the Summer Moon is many things--a thrilling account of the Texas frontier in the nineteenth century, a vivid description of the Comanche nation, a fascinating portrait of Cynthia Ann Parker and her son, the mysterious, magnificent Quanah--but most of all it is a ripping good read.

--Jake Silverstein, Editor, Texas Monthly, and author of Nothing Happened and Then It Did

"Man for man, the Comanches were the fiercest and most resourceful warriors in North America, and they held onto their domain with an almost otherworldly tenacity. In this sweeping work, S.C. Gwynne recreates the Comanche's lost world with gusto and style--and without sentimentality. After reading Empire of the Summer Moon, you'll never think about Texas, or the Great Plains, in quite the same way again."
--Hampton Sides, author of Blood and Thunder and Hellhound On His Trail
