Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“By far the finest novel of American Indian life I have ever read.”
Saturday Review of Literature

“[Waters's] long and wide experience… has given him an insight to the ways of the Indian, perhaps not exceeded by any other novelist.”
Los Angeles Times

“A rich fusion of myth and reality, both a detailed rendering of Pueblo Indian rituals, ceremonies and beliefs and an account of the Indians' political struggle to get back their ancestral lands.”
Westways

What People are saying about this

Stephen Vincent Benet
This is a very beautiful book -- perhaps the best book that has yet been written about the American Indian....It stands by itself.
