5.0 out of 5 stars Not just a story--a truly meaningful exploration.
A truly excellent novel, House Made of Dawn vividly depicts the alienation of a twentieth century Native American veteran in the true-to-life nonlinear fashion of American Indian oral tradition and spiritualism. Momaday's construction of the narrative reflects the confused, displaced state of his novel's protagonist, Abel.
Published on 20 May 1999

1.0 out of 5 stars Not my thing
Read the first page and couldn't read anymore, thought it was completely awful. Having read similar books I felt this book really didn't make the cut.

5.0 out of 5 stars Descriptive story of a Native American in the mid 1900, 17 Dec 1998
By A Customer
Although difficult to follow at times, Momaday is a master at description. Using intense situations and vivid illustration, it is a fantastic novel.
