House Made of Dawn, by Kiowa author N. Scott Momaday is widely credited bringing Native American literature into mainstream culture.

The novel won the Pulitzer Prize in 1969. It tells the story of a young American Indian named Abel, home from a foreign war and caught between two worlds: one of his father’s, wedding him to the rhythm of the seasons and the harsh beauty of the land; the other of industrial America, goading him into a compulsive cycle of dissipation and disgust.

N. Scott Momaday was born in 1934. His books include The Way to Rainy Mountain and The Names, his memoir.
