Book Description

New York, New York, U.S.A.: St. Martin's Press Inc, 1997. "THE MAN MADE OF WORDS is a spiritual and wise work that celebrates the glorious truth that our sacred tree is no longer dead. When N. Scott Momaday won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 1969, for his first novel HOUSE MADE OF DAWN, Native storytelling had only just begun to break the color line of American literature. THE MAD MADE OF WORDS is, therefore, the embodiment of Momaday's pilgrimage, a book that shows through essays, allegorical stories, and autobiographical reminiscences how Momaday became the first recognized Native voice of this century. This book has 211 pages and is illustrated. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the author, N. Scott Momaday. In addition, the volume is signed by Regina Momaday, N. Scott Momaday's wife, and a noted physicist in the southwest and former Olympic athlete. A volume of this type, SIGNED by both, is very difficult, if not impossible to obtain. Overall, a FINE copy of this MOST SCARCE item.. ISBN: 0-312-15581-6. First Edition (Second Printing). Hard Cover. Fine/Fine. Illus. by N. Scott Momaday (Illustrator). 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
