In 1836, Comanches raided the fort built by the Parker family in east Texas.  They left death and devastation in their wake, but they also took as captive nine-year-old Cynthia Ann Parker.  During the next twenty-four years Cynthia Ann lived as a Comanche.  She married and had three children.   After his mother’s recapture, her oldest son, Quanah, became the last Comanche leader to surrender.  Ride the Wind tells Cynthia Ann’s story.
