Brenham, TX, March 09, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- On a warm, clear day in the spring of 1836 seventeen-year-old Rachel Parker Plummer and her eighteen-month-old baby boy were abducted from their home in central Texas by a raiding party of Comanche and Kiowa Indians. She was, at that time, three months pregnant.
Separated from her son and three other prisoners, Rachel was taken to the far reaches of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado and Wyoming where she was held in the bondage of slavery for thirteen months.
Garlyn Webb Wilburn’s carefully researched historical novel delivers to the reader a true-to-life word picture into the early days of colonization when Texas was only a wilderness where hardships and violence were commonplace. Written in a narrative novel form, it yields insight into the lives of families who dared to intrude on the unwelcomed lands of the native people.
Garlyn Webb Wilburn is a native Texan, born in Limestone County, not far from the original site of “Old” Fort Parker.
Following thirty years as a teacher and administrator in Texas public schools, he now lives in Brenham, Texas, where he spends his time writing Texas novels and seeing after his two donkeys. He is the author of three fiction novels: The Donkey Boy, Monday, and Désireé’s Quest for Freedom.
