Herman Lehmann lived an extraordinary life.
In 1870, the 10-year-old was kidnapped by Apaches near Mason, TX. He lived with them for about seven years before killing a medicine man in an act of revenge. Lehmann escaped and sought shelter with the Comanche. There, he became the adopted son of Chief Quanah Parker.
In 1878, he was reunited with his birth family. But until his death in 1932, Lehmann had a hard time adjusting to life back in “civilization.” His 1927 book Nine Years Among the Indians is considered a classic.
