Description - House Made of Dawn by N. Scott Momaday
The Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece set against the landscape of the American Southwest.'Superb' New York TimesA young Native American, Abel has come home to New Mexico from war to find himself caught between two worlds. The first is the world of his grandfather's, wedding him to the rhythm of the seasons, the harsh beauty of the land, and the ancient rites and traditions of his people. But the other world - modern, industrial America - pulls at Abel, demanding his loyalty, claiming his soul, and goading him into a destructive, compulsive cycle of depravity and despair. An American classic, House Made of Dawn is simultaneously a tragic and hopeful tale about a stranger in his native land, finding his way back to all that is familiar and sacred.
