Homeward stretch, with two entries for you today…
If you read the review from Texan Girl Reads yesterday, it referenced two of the central characters in my novel, Charles Goodnight and Quanah Parker, and the deal struck between the Texas Cattleman and the Comanche War Chief.
“The thing that I found was very cool was the deal that Charles Goodnight made with Quanah. But y’all just have to read this book to see what I’m talking about!”
Spoiler alert! Today’s post in The Page Unbound contains an excerpt from the book that takes you to this meeting between the two antagonists and reveals their agreement. Of course, though you now know what she was talking about, I still hope you’ll read the book to put the event in context and understand how the arrangement turned mortal enemies into lifelong friends.
And, for those of you interested in more about me, A Novel Reality offers Favorites, Part 2, with entries on Destinations, Leisure Activity, Cuisine, Culture, Location, Sport, and Team. By the way, the last category shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Gig ‘Em Aggies!
