Informative and good. Having recently read The Son, I recognized enough of the material here to be almost certain that Meyer relied heavily on this book for his research about the Comanches.

thorough and interesting. but it needs to be updated as it only brings the story up to 1952. if i believed in reincarnation, i'd consider comin' back as a comanche warrior circa their hey. hellin' off over the south plains and all. . .
