MOMADAY, N. Scott
House Made of Dawn
NY, Harper & Row, (1968). One of the most acclaimed Native American novels ever written, and the first modern novel to attempt to fuse a fully conscious political awareness with an appreciation of the transcendent value, the "order and beauty," as Momaday writes, of the Native American culture and worldview. Signed by the author. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize: this copy comes with the belly band announcing the Prize. The band has been torn and re-taped. Fine in a very good dust jacket with shallow staining at the lower edge and a small upper corner chip. Uncommon with the band, and signed. [#035118] SOLD
