First published in paperback by UNM Press in 1976, The Way to Rainy Mountain has sold over 200,000 copies. "The paperback edition of The Way to Rainy Mountain was first published twenty-five years ago. One should not be surprised, I suppose, that it has remained vital, and immediate, for that is the nature of story. And this is particularly true of the oral tradition, which exists in a dimension of timelessness. I was first told these stories by my father when I was a child. I do not know how long they had existed before I heard them. They seem to proceed from a place of origin as old as the earth. "The stories in The Way to Rainy Mountain are told in three voices. The first voice is the voice of my father, the ancestral voice, and the voice of the Kiowa oral tradition. The second is the voice of historical commentary. And the third is that of personal reminiscence, my own voice. There is a turning and returning of myth, history, and memoir throughout, a narrative wheel that is as sacred as language itself."--from the new Preface… (més)

N. Scott Momaday weaves his gentle words and observations of nature
in balance with historical facts and often in contrast
with the violent, murderous, and shameless episodes of U.S. soldiers and his own Kiowa ancestors.

Al Momaday's illustrations are perfectly evocative.

Readers may well be inspired to search out George Catlin's incredible paintings of Kotsatoah and Mammedaty! ( )

N. Scott Momaday combines personal, familial, and tribal to describe Kiowa Indian history. Momaday juxtaposes personal narratives and cultural narratives to bring the Kiowa culture into modern day. He communicates what the Kiowa tradition means to him by splitting the perspective of the culture amongst himself, his forebears, and anthropologists. The novel embodies all of the elements of Native American literature; particularly the respect for nature. In addition, the book serves as a primary resource that attests to the ability of humans to adapt to circumstances. The language in the novel is beautiful, poetic, and full of imagery. I use this text extensively in a unit exploring descriptive language: images and detail. Momaday's text is essential in a unit identifying the elements of Native American literature and in a unit identifying the bond between nature and man in Transcendentalism.

I was introduced to N. Scott Momaday's unique book in a class this semester where we discussed the overlying themes and message of The Way to Rainy Mountain.

Told in a three part process through myth, historical, and personal journey, Momaday relates the oral traditions and his own connection to the Kiowa people. They journeyed from Montana to their final settlement in Oklahoma over centuries of time, and in three sections (not counting the beautiful introduction and epilogue), he recounts their origin stories, the passing movement of the tribe, and finally the narrowing of the culture as it was eliminated through the diecide of the Tai-me.

This is a deceptively small book, filled with quite a bit of white space, but do not let it fool you. It's rich in message, history, and myth - recording oral tradition that, before, was just one generation away from dying. And even then, it's a fragment of what could, if not already has been, be lost.

I've read this book three times, the first in a linear fashion - myth to myth, historical to historical, personal to personal. The second in the way it is written, horizontally. And the last way thoughtfully, drawing connections throughout the book, tracing themes, investigating ideas, researching as I went. I recommend all of these ways in order to attempt to understand all of the importance of Momaday's message. ( )

Read this in college 8 years ago... I recall parts were interesting, but I ended up actually writing a term paper against teaching it because I thought it was weak overall. The professor actually agreed with my rationale. I'm afraid I can't remember what that rationale was at the moment, but I should still have a copy of that paper somewhere. ( )

Headwaters

Noon in the intermountain plain:
There is scant telling of the marsh--
A log, hollow and weather-stained,
An insect at the mouth, and moss--
Yet waters rise against the roots,
Stand brimming to the stalks. What moves?
What moves on this archaic force
Was wild and welling at the source.
