MATHEWS, John Joseph
NY, Longmans, Green, 1934. His second book, and only novel, about the American Southwest. The first modern novel by a Native American writer to deal directly with questions of "Indianness," the alienation from culture and self provoked by white men's education, and the futile attempt to become assimilated into the dominant culture. Small numerical stamp on the rear flyleaf; removal abrasion on front pastedown; otherwise a near fine copy in a very good, spine-sunned dust jacket with several small edge chips and an open tear on the rear panel (not affecting author photo).
