Empire of the Summer Moon: Quanah Parker and the Rise and Fall of the Comanches, the Most Powerful Indian Tribe in American History - S.C. Gwynne - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book Empire of the Summer Moon:

A *biased* history of the Comanches.

My favorite Quanah Parker quote:

"All same people anyway, God say."

Questions to ponder while reading Empire of the Summer Moon:

What makes a culture desirable?

Should US-made treaties be enforced by the U.S. Government?

My thoughts about Empire of the Summer Moon:

A good history of Texas

Quanah Parker was amazing

I struggled with  Gwynne's bias, and I think a culture with superior weaponry is hardly "primitive".
