Summary
"A word is intrinsically powerful. If you believe in the power of words, you can bring about physical change in the universe," says Pulitizer Prize-winner Momaday in this stimulating series of conversations with Woodard, his friend and colleague. Of Kiowa Indian heritage, Momaday is the best known contemporary Native American writer. His prose, poetry, and these conversations reflect the depth and significance of his Kiowa ancestry, which mingles with more contemporary influences. As this work quotes Momaday directly in a well-organized progression of concepts, it complements Matthias Schubnell's literary analysis, N. Scott Momaday ( Univ. of Oklahoma Pr., 1986). Drawings by Momaday illustrate the text. Recommended for all American literature collections. - Mary B. Davis, Museum of the American Indian, New York
