If you’ve been a fan of Double D long, you’ve probably come to realize that behind nearly everything we do (or Cheryl does, rather), there is a story. Whether it’s a place or a person, a memory or a movie, something, someone, or somewhere inspired every single thing she creates; and much credit to her, she is committed to telling that story.
Most people in the United States, or at the very least Texas, are at least vaguely familiar with the story of Cynthia Ann Parker, and her son, Quanah. But, being decades removed from junior high history class, the details of her strife and survival have likely grown a bit fuzzy. Because a big part of our mission – and as we see it, our duty – is to educate, we thought now would be a great opportunity to retell her story and celebrate her strength.
[Please note: We are not Wikipedia; so, while we intend to be accurate and informative, we also aim to make it interesting, and this is by no means a comprehensive account of everything that happened. There are countless resources available if you find yourself fascinated and interested delving deeper into Cynthia’s story, which we encourage you to do.]
