Summary
A prize-winning addition to the Zia series, Portrait of an Artist with 26 Horses is the story of Indian and white cultures at the boundaries of the Navajo Reservation and the "big white reservation" of the United States. The author, one of the great southwestern novelists, has been praised as a "hard, dry, tender, very contemporary talent" (The Nation) and "a talented writer with a very individual style" (The New Yorker). In this book, originally published in 1963, he explores the ironies of existence in a series of crises in the lives of father and son, Indian and White, medicine man, smuggler, Nazi, poet. The fate of Ring Bowman, trapped at the bottom of a quicksand arroyo, is the central plot and source of tension, as well as the backdrop for several stories that may be read as tableaux of good and evil -- Back cover
