N. Scott Momaday's deep, distinctive voice draws listeners into his reflections on a remembered Earth. The writer starts by sharing the memories of his grandfather, Dragonfly, a Kiowa holy man who prayed to raise the sun. What Momaday knows of his grandfather came through his father's stories. Momaday, who considers himself an Earth keeper, conveys his dreams of Dragonfly, speaking with an enunciation that might make listeners feel like they're listening to a stage performance. Momaday shares his sadness at the decline of buffalo herds, his wonder at seeing a large butterfly, and the age and wisdom he sees in a turtle's face. Listeners will be enthralled as they share his personal quest and his vision of the American West. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
