Product description

Review

Nothing short of a revelation. Gwynne doesn't merely retell the story of Parker's life. he pulls his readers through an American frontier roiling with extreme violence, political intrigue, bravery, anguish, coruption, love, knives, rifles and arrows. Lots and lots of arrow. This book will leave dust on your jeans. (New York Times)

Cuts through all the BS - from the left and right - about how the West was won from the Indians and how America began to lose its soul. (James Patterson)

A rivetting book. (Economist)

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 will find irresistible. I couldn't put it down. (The Texas Tribune.)

S.C. 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....I couldn't put it down. (Jake Silverstein, Editor, Texas Monthly.)

In this sweeping work, S.C. Gwynne recreates the Comanche's lost world with gusto and style-and without sentimentality. (Hampton Sides, author of Blood and Thunder.)

Excellent. (Sunday Times)

Gwynne has set out to write a western epic, and his narrative is enormously entertaining, but it is hard to discern a coherent historical thesis. (London Review of Books)

... an unashamedly exciting narrative of the American West. (Sunday Times)

Book Description

The New York Times bestselling history of the Comanches in the tradition of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.
