Review:

For a complete history of the Comanches, this book probably has no equal. Dee Brown, author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee
This is a very good book. Like virtually all good books about the American Indian, it tells a tragic story, but unlike many of them, it tells it well. The author has mastered an extensive and complex subject: he is flexible, well-organized, and sensitive. Larry McMurtry
Fehrenbach is a highly interpretive and original writer, whose work rests on solid scholarship. His book ranges grandly across the disciplines from folklore to anthropology to history. Southwestern Historical Quarterly"
