Podcast Episode 141: Abducted by Indians, a Captive of Whites
In 1836, Indians abducted a 9-year-old girl from her home in East Texas. She made a new life among the Comanche, with a husband and three children. Then, after 24 years, the whites abducted her back again. In this week's episode of the Futility Closet podcast we'll tell the story of Cynthia Ann Parker, caught up in a war between two societies.

We'll also analyze a forger's motives and puzzle over why a crowd won't help a dying woman.
