The Ancient Child

The Ancient Child

Description

In his first novel since the Pulitzer Prize-winning "House Made of Dawn, " N. Scott Momaday shapes the ancient Kiowa myth of a boy who turned into a bear into a timeless American classic. "The Ancient Child" juxtaposes Indian lore and Wild West legend into a hypnotic, often lyrical contemporary novel--the story of Locke Setman, known as Set, a Native American raised far from the reservation by his adoptive father. Set feels a strange aching in his soul and, returning to tribal lands for the funeral of his grandmother, is drawn irresistibly to the fabled bear-boy. When he meets Grey, a beautiful young medicine woman with a visionary gift, his world is turned upside down. Here is a magical saga of one man's tormented search for his identity--a quintessential American novel, and a great one.
