EPISODE 5 — “Naduah”
Texas Ranger Sul Ross makes a fateful discovery during an expedition against the Comanches. He finds a woman who had been captured more than 20 years earlier. But the revelation has tragic consequences. He takes the woman back to white society, but the culture shock overwhelms her. It proves to be one of the most controversial and hotly debated topics in Texas history.
This is the full story of the capture, and re-capture, of Cynthia Ann Parker, whose journey inspired the acclaimed film “The Searchers” with John Wayne.
