Overview

In this enchanting book, Scott Momaday retells myths of his people and describes the Indian way of life he knew as a child. In two dozen passages, he tells of how his people entered the world through a hollow log, shares stories of great events and heroes, and recalls fantastic creatures like a buffalo with horns of steel. Supplementing these stories with factual notations and personal reminiscences, Momaday has created more than a collection of folklore. The Way to Rainy Mountain is a treasury of images that preserves the Kiowa way of life.

Supposed to be about native american heritage. Instead, it is something on psychology

Downloaded this so that I could understand what some of my students are reading. Fortunately, it was a free version; unfortunately, it was in French and I couldn't read it :-(.
