Summary
Story centers around Myron Begay--Divine Arrow is his Indian name--a young Navajo who is apparently won away from his tribe until he believes that he can solve the problem of life by making an imitation of a white man out of himself. Never able to escape from what he really is--a potential leader of his own people--he becomes more and more confused until he finally breaks down and commits murder. As one under a curse, Myron instinctively goes back into the Navajo country where he drifts as a lost soul. Through a series superb scenes, the story rises to the final emotional crisis leading to the solution of his life -- Back cover
