You know the story of Cynthia Ann Parker, but she was by no means the only Anglo child captured by Plains Indians in Texas in the 1800s. Join us for a lecture from award-winning author Scott Zesch as he delves into the stories of Indian captivity from his book The Captured. Zesch’s research stems from stories of his great-great-great uncle who, as a boy, was abducted by and then lived with Comanches for three years, adopting their lifestyle and language. Join us to hear this and other engrossing stories of life on the Texas frontier.
