5つ星のうち 5.0 The West's Most Famous Indian Captive 2001/6/12
By Amazon Customer - (Amazon.com)
On May 19th, 1836 nine-year-old Cynthia Ann Parker, a member of a group of religious families occupying Fort Parker in Texas, witnessed the massacre of friends and relatives by combined bands of Caddos, Kiowas and Comanche warriors. Abducted by the Comanches, Cynthia was raised for the next 25 years as a tribal member and became "fully" Comanche, giving birth to Quanah Parker, the last Comanche Chief and one of the most influential intermediaries of his time, a representative of both the Native American and White cultures. Abducted a second time as an adult by a well-meaning Texas Ranger, Cynthia Ann was forced to return to White society, but mourned deeply for her Comanche family, ultimately starving herself to death out of grief.
Much lore and legend has grown around the story of Cynthia Ann Parker over the years, and it has often been difficult to separate the myth from the reality of her dramatic story. However, Margaret Schmidt Hacker has done just that. Over a period of five years, Ms. Hacker painstakingly researched the archives in Texas, Oklahoma, California and Washington, D.C. and objectively weighed all the accounts of Cynthia Ann's life. The result of her efforts is what is considered the most authoritative book on the subject. Although scholarly, it is at the same time, a gripping drama of the Texas prairies, and very readable by anyone with an interest in the Old West. Highly recommended reading.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Examining the Myth 1999/10/15
By Fred Rhodes - (Amazon.com)
Countless folk tales and sagas have focused on the story of Miss Parker, a captive of the Comanches for more than 15 years. Many of them deal only with her years as the mother of the famous Quanah Parker. Author Margaret Schmidt Hacker devoted five years to researching the life of the Cynthia Ann to reveal the history behind the myth. This is the tragic story of the abduction of a nine year old girl who returned reluctantly to white society when she was 24. A fascinating portrait of her life among the Comanches on the Texas frontier.

5つ星のうち 4.0 Straight-forward, focused, no frills or detours 2002/5/30
By Jennifer B. Barton - (Amazon.com)
This is a compact history ... but it does just what you want - gives what history is known of Cynthia Ann Parker. This is an excellent resource if you are wanting to know about Cynthia Ann Parker from the settler's perspective - the people she left behind, the family she had come from, and the search for her that continued throughout her 'captivity'. The author seems to steer clear of any area of conjecture, such as why Cynthia Ann got shuttled between family members after her return or what may have happened to her pension, and sticks only to documentable history. She also avoided sidetracking into the history of Cynthia Ann's famous son or the other people in her life except for as far as they pertain to Cynthia Ann's life. Focus is very tight, very informative.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Cynthia Ann Parker: The Life and the Legend 2007/9/1
By Lynne M. Manero - (Amazon.com)
I suggest reading this book before reading "Ride the Wind". It serves as a chronicalled historical foundation before reading the novel "Ride the Wind" that will definitely prepare you for an unimaginable journey into the world of the American Indian of 150 years ago.
5つ星のうち 5.0 A remarkable book, remarkable experience 2014/3/30
By Prudie Orr - (Amazon.com)
Hacker has provided a carefully researched account of a Texan/ Comanche, or Comanche/Texan, a heroine whose contribution as a king-maker (mother of Quanah Parker, the Comanche leader), survivor of the worst of the "Stockholm Syndrome" whose almost limitless spirit enabled her to triumph among the combination of cruelty and remarkable comradeship of her adopted society. She is an inspiration to the human family. Despite her interminable suffering, her biological family, and by extension others such as my own, could be provided some understanding in iits treatment of her, including their remarkable /lack of understanding of her life and world, based on their superior's official position of inherent dominance and associated justification of land takerover and cultural annihiliation assumed necessary in the "Western expansion.".
