That name change came after he was sent to Pennsylvania‚ where he had joined other frightened Indian youths at the Carlisle Industrial School. It was by this name that he was known after his return to the reservation. Now Daniel Killstraight and another Comanche‚ Charles Flint‚ are told by the Indian agent that they are to go to Texas. They will be joining the Comanche delegation led by Quanah Parker‚ the renowned Comanche chief‚ who will be negotiating leases for the lush grasslands of the Comanche reservation now coveted by Texas cattlemen as graze for their herds. In Texas‚ the gas lamps in Parker’s room are blown out‚ rather than turned off during the night‚ killing another Comanche chief and putting Parker in a comatose condition‚ and it is Daniel who believes it was not an accident‚ but murder.
