The Way to Rainy Mountain


by N. Scott Momaday. University of New Mexico, $4.95. Mr. Momaday retells the Kiowa myths that he learned from his grandmother, speculates on the actual history they may symbolize, and describes, with infectious nostalgia, the Indian life he knew as a child. There are distinctive illustrations by die author’s father, Al Momaday. The whole book is most attractive—beautifully written, full of gentleness and dignity. But it nags eloquently at the white conscience.
