Editorial Reviews

Review

"Superb." -- -- New York Times Book Review

"A new romanticism, with a reverence for the land, a transcendent optimism, and a sense of mythic wholeness...Push[es] the secular mode of modern fiction into the sacred mode, a faith and recognition in the power of the world." -- American Literature

"Almost unbearably authentic and powerful...Anyone who picks up this novel and reads the first paragraph will be hard pressed to put it down." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

A special fiftieth anniversary edition of N. Scott Momaday’s magnificent Pulitzer Prize–winning classic, set against the incomparable landscape of the American Southwest

A young Native American, Abel has come home to New Mexico from war to find himself caught between two worlds. The first is the world of his grandfather’s, wedding him to the rhythm of the seasons, the harsh beauty of the land, and the ancient rites and traditions of his people. But the other world — modern, industrial America — pulls at Abel, demanding his loyalty, claiming his soul, and goading him into a destructive, compulsive cycle of depravity and despair.

An American classic, now reissued with a new preface from Momaday, House Made of Dawn is at once a tragic tale about the disabling effects of war and cultural separation, and a hopeful story of a stranger in his native land, finding his way back to all that is familiar and sacred.
