I returned to Rainy Mountain in July. My grandmother had died in the spring, and I wanted to be at her grave. It was a journey toward the dawn, and it led to a golden age. Along the way the Kiowas were befriended by the Crows, who gave them the culture and religion of the Plains. She had lived to be very old and at last infirm. They acquired horses, and their ancient nomadic spirit was suddenly free of the ground.

In this enchanting book, Scott Momaday retells myths of his people and describes the Indian way of life he knew as a child. In two dozen passages, he tells of how his people entered the world through a hollow log, shares stories of great events and heroes, and recalls fantastic creatures like a buffalo with horns of steel. Supplementing these stories with factual notations and personal reminiscences, Momaday has created more than a collection of folklore. The Way to Rainy Mountain is a treasury of images that preserves the Kiowa way of life.

I'm an avid student of the story of life ( pre-white man) as a Native American. Scott Momaday is a master craftsman with language and he melds the memory of times past with what those memories mean now to a man of Kiowa heritage. I will re-read this consuming opportunity to feel something of what the noble life of a free people was like. The feeling of empathy with these original Americans is warm and exciting. This book makes me feel like I can understand something that I will never truly be able to know. Thanks to Scott Momaday.
This is not really a typical novel or book, and may be a little abstract for some readers, but if you are interested in Native American mythology, this is an interesting book to read. I highly recommend it. One thing to understand before reading this book is that it is narrated in three "voices" (easily distinguished from each other because they are separated into paragraphs). T
I enjoyed the stories in this book. Momaday does a good job relating the historical oral history of the Kiowa people in a way that jeeps you anting to read more. I could hear his wonderful voice as I read. The personal family stories he offers give even more clarity to the overall book. I would recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the Kiowa people, to Native American folklore.
Each brief Kiowa tale is told three ways: the traditional tale as told by his father, then as by a historian, and third by the author as his living experience of nature. Unique and delicately wrought
I loved the story. I was super blessed by being in Santa Fe at the same time Jill Momaday presented her beautifully created film production of Return to Rainy Mountain at the Film Festival. Seeing her and her father as we, the audience, were blessed by their relationship and the importance of story became so richly shared with us. The book speaks volumes to us as we embrace this story!!
One of the most amazing books. The 3 perspectives are amazing: the myth, the historical, and the modern native view.
Rainy Mountain is in my home area of Oklahoma. Many schoolmates were members of Kiowa, Comanche, Apache and other tribes, and many tribal headquarters are located in our county. This book reminds or educates us all about their culture, past and present.
Despite it being a quick read I recommend it fully. Gives a great story into the world of the native people. He's also a fantastic author and keeps you engaged the whole time through all the different stories and lessons in the book.
