    1. 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. . .

    2. 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.
