Abstract
 
Description
In 1836, nine-year-old Cynthia Ann Parker was kidnapped from her home in West Texas by raiding Comanche warriors. Twenty-five years later, Cynthia Ann - now called Naduah - considers herself Comanche. She is the wife of a chief and the mother of a baby girl and two young warrior. But Cynthia Ann's life changes again when she and her daughter are recaptured by Texas ranger and forced to return to the settler community. Although the Parker family rejoices at her return, Cynthia Ann's adjustment to living with her "true" family proves to be as difficult as her kidnapping a quarter century before. As Cynthia Ann struggles to understand the settlers' ways and to remember their language, she is sustained by the hope that her son, the feared warrior Quanah, will find her and return her home to the Comanche people.

Filled with fascinating facts about life in a Comanche community and among settlers in Texas at the beginning of the Civil War, Carolyn Meyer's moving story is a riveting examination of the conflicts between Native Americans and white settlers.
