Quanah Parker: Comanche Chief

by Claire Wilson

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 8-10-- A clear, if somewhat dry, account of the life of the Comanche warrior. Wilson's presentation is objective and largely free of fictionalization; she describes his life as the child of a Comanche leader and a white woman who had been brought up as an Indian. She points out that even though he grew wealthy and adopted many non-Indian customs in his later years, he was very proud of his status among the Comanche and retained his tribal traditions. Well-produced, black-and-white photographs are liberally sprinkled throughout the text. Len Hilts's Quanah Parker (HBJ, 1987) covers much of the same information in a livelier, but fictionalized and less-well illustrated, biography. --George Gleason, Department of English, Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield Adult Books for Young Adults Fiction
