Quanah Parker (Comanche kwana, "smell, odor") (c. 1845 or 1852 – February 20, 1911) was a war leader of the Quahadi ("Antelope") band of the Comanche Nation. He was born into the Nokoni ("Wanderers") band, the son of Comanche chief Peta Nocona and Cynthia Ann Parker, an Anglo-American, who had been kidnapped as a child and assimilated into the tribe.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places listings in Comanche County, Oklahoma, in 1970. After Comanche chief Quanah Parker's surrender in 1875, he lived for many years in a reservation tipi

This book is one of pleasurable reading and also historical value. Many who attend college have done reviews on it. Quanah was born to an Indian Chief and his white wife who was captured when she was nine years old. His white ancestors were great political leaders and preachers. Trained in warfare, he was bold and cunning, always the leader. Being the last Chief to adhere to the laws of the United States, it is amazing the recognition he received from both whites and Indians. He fought for the rights of his people while roaming the plains and when he brought his people to the reservation near Lawton, OK he continued his battles by making trips to Washington D.C. He became friends with President Teddy Roosevelt, rode in his inaugural parade, and arranged for a wolf hunt for him and others. It is NOT OUT OF PRINT.

This book is STILL IN PRINT and sells for original price. Why pay more for out of print or a used copy? Full of history which is quite useful for students at all levels in school. Life on the plains and on the reservation did not deter Quanah Parker, last great Comanche Chief, from being a leader.
