Runner in the Sun

By D'Arcy McNickle; Afterword by Alfonso Ortiz; Illustrated by Allan C. Houser
SERIES: Zia Books
University of New Mexico Press

First published in 1954 and long out of print, this novel of pre-Hispanic Indian life in the Southwest combines the authenticity of an anthropological report with the suspense of a mystery novel. The author, best known as an anthropologist during his lifetime, is now recognized as a major Native American novelist. Hitherto virtually unknown, Runner in the Sun is sure to take its place next to McNickle's The Surrounded, also available from UNM Press, as a classic of Native American fiction.
