Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Of all of the works of N. Scott Momaday, The Names may be the most personal. A memoir of his boyhood in Oklahoma and the Southwest, it is also described by Momaday as "an act of the imagination. When I turn my mind to my early life, it is the imaginative part of it that comes first and irresistibly into reach, and of that part I take hold." Complete with family photos, The Names is a book that will captivate readers who wish to experience the Native American way of life.

About the Author

A preeminent practitioner of twentieth century literature, N. Scott Momaday is perhaps best known for having blazed a trail for contemporary Native American writers. A Pulitzer Prize winner and member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Momaday in many respects is a class unto himself. Momaday is Regents Professor of English at the University of Arizona. A popular speaker, he narrated the PBS series The West.
