Description

House Made of Dawn was the first novel by a Native American to win the Pulitzer Prize and remains a classic of contemporary literature. It will carry you to the mysterious, magnificent heart of the American Southwest, and to the soul of its ancient native people. With a powerful prose, brimming with sensuous descriptions, Momaday weaves the story of a young mixed-blood who is torn between his tribal heritage and the poisonous enticements of the white world. He traces Abel's difficult emotional journey back to the land and traditions of his ancestors and, finally, and to his own identity. A teacher, painter, storyteller, and writer, N. Scott Momaday has published works of fiction, poetry, and criticism. In 1992 he received the Native American Lifetime Achievement Award. Veteran narrator George Guidall's rich, dignified voice and smooth, professional delivery is perfectly suited for Momaday's striking style. His virtuoso performance is certain to make this extraordinary work more memorable than ever.

Professional reviews

"This Pulitzer Prize winner is set among Native Americans of the Southwest; its young hero strives to find his identity while straddling the worlds of whites and Indians. Narrator Guidall handles the lush, sensuous descriptive passages with consummate poetry, but something about the narrative seems to defeat him. It's difficult to concentrate on this tape and to keep the action and characters clear. Perhaps this has something to do with the sound quality, which mutes the sharp higher notes as if heavy clouds hovered between the mike and the actor. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
