Little is known about Cynthia Ann Parker beyond the fact that she was taken as a nine-year-old girl and raised by Comanche Indians. Twenty-five years later, she was captured by Texas Rangers and forcibly returned to her white relatives.

There she remained until her death a few years later. This is a fictionalized account of her life. A riveting and moving examination of the conflicts between Native Americans and white settlers in the mid-19th century.
