    Pulitzer Prize winner and celebrated American master N. Scott Momaday returns with a radiant collection of more than 200 new and selected poems rooted in Native American tradition. 

    "The poems in this book reflect my deep respect for and appreciation of words.... I believe that poetry is the highest form of verbal expression. Although I have written in other forms, I find that poems are what I want and need most to read and write. They give life to my mind."

    One of the most important and unique voices in American letters, distinguished poet, novelist, artist, teacher, and storyteller N. Scott Momaday was born into the Kiowa tribe and grew up on Indian reservations in the Southwest. The customs and traditions that influenced his upbringing - most notably the Native American oral tradition - are the centerpiece of his work.

    This luminous collection demonstrates Momaday’s mastery and love of language and the matters closest to his heart. To Momaday, words are sacred; language is power. Spanning nearly 50 years, the poems gathered here illuminate the human condition, Momaday’s connection to his Kiowa roots, and his spiritual relationship to the American landscape. 

    The title poem, "The Death of Sitting Bear" is a celebration of heritage and a memorial to the great Kiowa warrior and chief. "I feel his presence close by in my blood and imagination," Momaday writes, "and I sing him an honor song." Here, too, are meditations on mortality, love, and loss, as well as reflections on the incomparable and holy landscape of the Southwest.

    The Death of Sitting Bear evokes the essence of human experience and speaks to us all.

    His voice, words and life are truly treasures

    Momaday is man, but his words and his voice are not of this earth. This new collection of poems provided my first experience with his poetry. What an experience indeed. A lifelong novel and biography reader, interested in anything and everything- stories set the world over, I didn’t think I could be gripped by poetry. Not only did I deeply feel the words of Momaday’s poetry, I felt that I understood it with an awareness that I didn’t know within me.
    Furthermore, the fact that he narrates this piece himself gives the recording a guaranteed authenticity. I know I am reading/hearing the poem as he wants me to, and I glean meaning from his tone. His voice is incredibly powerful, and somehow seems to be a work of art in itself.
    I recently saw “Words From a Bear,” which is the PBS American Masters biography of Momaday. I recommend any reader/listener watch this film, as he is simply a pleasure to know and learn about if only on film and by voice. I’m so pleased to have gifted myself the privilege of getting to know Momaday’s work.

    Like going to the real Church

    Poetry volumes don’t always lend themselves to the audio format. This one does. To hear Mr. Momaday share his own work gives it its proper voice. Thanks.

    What a wonderful listen…

    This wonderful book of poetry will bring peace to any listener. To quote a couple of haikus from the the chapter titled “A Century of Impressions”:

    A book of poems
    Arrived in the afternoon
    Bound excitement

    One hundred haiku
    Elemental exercise
    To nourish the mind

    In the beginning
    The sound of the spoken word
    The roll of thunder

    Thank you M Scott Momaday
