The 1968 publication of his first novel House Made of Dawn brought N. Scott Momaday a Pulitzer Prize and wide renown as the leading figure in a Native-American literary renaissance. His subsequent works in prose and poetry have shown what richness and power can result from blending Native-American oral traditions with classical European forms.
