The History of a People
By (author) T. R. Fehrenbach
Comanches by T. R. Fehrenbach
Book DescriptionAuthoritative and immediate, this is the classic account of the most powerful of the American Indian tribes, in which author Fehrenbach traces the Comanches' rise to power, from their prehistoric origins to their domination of the high plains for more than a century until their demise in the face of Anglo-American expansion. Master horseback riders who lived in tepees and hunted bison, the Comanches were stunning orators, disciplined warriors, and the finest makers of arrows. They lived by a strict legal code and worshipped within a cosmology of magic. As he portrays the Comanche lifestyle, Fehrenbach recreates their doomed battle against European encroachment. While they destroyed the Spanish dream of colonising North America and blocked the French advance into the Southwest, the Comanches ultimately fell before the Texas Rangers and the U.S. Army in the great raids and battles of the mid-nineteenth century. This is a classic American story, vividly and poignantly told.
