DESCRIPTION

Empire of the Summer time Moon spans two astonishing tales. The primary traces the rise and fall of the Comanches, probably the most highly effective Indian tribe in American historical past. The second entails probably the most exceptional narratives ever to come back out of the Previous West: the epic saga of the pioneer lady Cynthia Ann Parker and her mixed-blood son, Quanah, who grew to become the final and biggest chief of the Comanches. Though listeners could also be extra aware of the names Apache and Sioux, it was in reality the legendary combating potential of the Comanches that decided simply how and when the American West opened up. They have been so masterful at battle and so skillful with their arrows and lances that they stopped the northern drive of colonial Spain from Mexico and halted the French growth westward from Louisiana. White settlers arriving in Texas from the Japanese United States have been shocked to search out the frontier being rolled backward by Comanches incensed by the invasion of their tribal lands. So efficient have been the Comanches that they compelled the creation of the Texas Rangers and account for the appearance of the brand new weapon particularly designed to struggle them: the six-gun. The battle with the Comanches lasted 4 many years, in impact holding up the event of the brand new American nation. Gwynne’s exhilarating account delivers a sweeping narrative that encompasses Spanish colonialism, the Civil Warfare, the destruction of the buffalo herds, and the arrival of the railroads – a historic feast for anybody focused on how the USA got here into being. PLEASE NOTE: While you buy this title, the accompanying PDF might be accessible in your Audible Library together with the audio.
