The son of white captive Cynthia Ann Parker, Quanah Parker rose
from able warrior to tribal leader on the Comanche reservation.
Between 1875 and his death in 1911, Quanah dealt with local Indian
agents and with presidents and other high officials in Washington,
facing the classic dilemma of a leader caught between the dictates
of an occupying power and the wrenching physical and spiritual
needs of his people. He maintained a remarkable blend of
progressive and traditional beliefs, and contrary to government
policy, he practiced polygamy and the peyote religion. In this
crisp and readable biography, William T Hagan presents a
well-balanced portrait of Quanah Parker, the chief, and Quanah, the
man torn between two worlds.
