"A Native American version of Roots . . . full of the sense of wonder that characterizes classic American literature." —Choice
"Graceful, lucid prose...[Momaday] is forever an Indian and the reader understands why." —Atlantic Monthly
"With the eye of a painter and the voice of a poet, Momaday vividly recreates a childhood world of color, sound, and experience played out against the backdrop of tribal tales and in the shadow of revered forebears. . . . An eloquent statement of this distinguished Native American author's search for identity." —Journal of Arizona History
From the Inside Flap
Of all of the works of N. Scott Momaday, "The Names" may be the most personal. A memoir of his boyhood in Oklahoma and the Southwest, it is also described by Momaday as "an act of the imagination. When I turn my mind to my early life, it is the imaginative part of it that comes first and irresistibly into reach, and of that part I take hold." Complete with family photos, "The Names" is a book that will captivate readers who wish to experience the Native American way of life.
