Order Now! Return: The Parker Story
Return is one of the best known stories of the Southwest--of Cynthia Ann Parker, Quanah Parker, James Parker, Sul Ross, Sam Houston, Isaac Parker, and other members of the Parker family--updated and retold with previously unpublished facts and documents. The names of the participants loom large in the history of Texas and the Southwest. Their response to the challenges they faced lifted them from the ranks of the ordinary, and they have become the subjects of legends which live on today. Return places them center stage, separating fact from fiction, and giving an old story a new life.
