I'm not all that sure how to categorize this book, other than Beautiful. Each numbered section is in three parts—History, Myth, Memoir. It tells the search Momaday undertook to find his roots (Kiowa), to reconnect to the land, the people, his family.
A fast reader, I thought I'd have this book devoured in a relatively short time. It took several nights; because I would read a bit, then have to think about what I'd read. Not just the words, but also the artistic way they were placed next to each other and on the page as a whole.
When I finished the book, I realized I had learned a great deal. What a beautiful way to get an education!
