The Names - A Memoir - N. Scott Momaday

This was a beautiful story of family and a culture.  The book is recognized as the beginning of Native American writing, bringing their way of life and viewpoint on it to the greater public.  I was struck by the information he had on many generations of his family, back to the early 1800's.  The realtionship with the wide open land of his home and the rituals of their daily lives.
