It is the white man's year of 1840. Tsena, sixteen-year-old son of a Comanche peace chief, does not know that it is also the year the white man will change his life forever. Tsena's story is based on two historical encounters between the Comanches and Texans, the Council House Massacre and the Battle of Plum Creek. Although history is usually written from the Texan point of view, in this novel the reader will find out what it might have been like for a Comanche boy who was there.

From the Publisher:

Comanche Song is on the 2001 list for Best Books for the Teen Age by the New York Public Library.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-Likable and believable, 16-year-old Tsena, son of a Comanche peace chief, finds himself at the center of two violent confrontations with the tejanos in the Republic of Texas in 1840. Though his father counsels peaceful relations with the new arrivals, the other chiefs oppose his recommendations. At a council with the Texans concerning an exchange of captives, violence erupts, and several chiefs are killed, including Tsena's father. The remaining Comanches, mostly women and children, are taken hostage. Thus begins the protagonist's close contact with the tejanos and the deepening of his understanding that both sides have committed wrongs. As events lead to the Battle of Plum Creek, Shefelman capably juggles the political struggles within the Comanche bands, a burgeoning romance between Tsena and the granddaughter of another chief, the teen's rivalry with his half-brother, and numerous aspects of daily life and thought among the Comanches. The casual cruelty of which both cultures were guilty is noted, and the author's treatment is balanced. There are minor infelicities-the attempt to create some semblance of the speech and thought of another time and people seems at times like movie-speak; and Tsena's father and grandfather are almost flawless characters. Still, this novel is a solid achievement-involving, swiftly moving, fair-minded. The only significant drawback is the jacket painting in which Tsena looks closer to 10 than 16, which may deter older readers.
