The Way to Rainy Mountain, 50th Anniversary Edition

By N. Scott Momaday; Illustrated by Al Momaday
University of New Mexico Press

The Way to Rainy Mountain recalls the journey of Tai-me, the sacred Sun Dance doll, and of Tai-me's people in three unique voices: the legendary, the historical, and the contemporary. It is also the personal journey of N. Scott Momaday, who on a pilgrimage to the grave of his Kiowa grandmother traversed the same route taken by his forebears and in so doing confronted his Kiowa heritage. It is an evocation of three things in particular: a landscape that is incomparable, a time that is gone forever, and the human spirit, which endures. Celebrating fifty years since its 1969 release, this new edition offers a moving new preface and invites a new generation of readers to explore the Kiowa myths, legends, and history with Pulitzer Prize-winning author N. Scott Momaday.

A member of the Kiowa tribe, N. Scott Momaday was born in Oklahoma but grew up on reservations in the Southwest. Momaday won the Pultizer Prize for Fiction in 1969 for his novel House Made of Dawn.
