Indian man; a life of Oliver La Farge by D'Arcy McNickle( Book )

13 editions published between 1971 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From his first travels in southwestern Indian country as a Harvard undergraduate to his final visit to the Taos pueblo shortly before his death, Oliver La Farge was involved with American Indians and engaged in a dedicated struggle to improve their lot. What began for him as a 'pet charity'--membership on the board of directors of a citizens' organization to help the Indians--became an all-consuming interest. His lifelong devotion to the Indian cause drained much energy that might otherwise have gone into his writing, yet it enriched his talent profoundly and gave rise to his most successful books, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Laughing Boy."--Book jacket

As The Surrounded opens, Archilde León has just returned from the big city to his father's ranch on the Flathead Indian Reservation in Montana. The story that unfolds captures the intense and varied conflict that already characterized reservation life in 1936, when this remarkable novel was first published. Educated at a federal Indian boarding school, Archilde is torn not only between white and Indian cultures but also between love for his Spanish father and his Indian mother, who in her old age is rejecting white culture and religion to return to the ways of her people. Archilde's young contemporaries, meanwhile, are succumbing to the destructive influence of reservation life, growing increasingly uprooted, dissolute, and hopeless. Although Archilde plans to leave the reservation after a brief visit, his entanglements delay his departure until he faces destruction by the white man's law. In an early review of The Surrounded, Oliver La Farge praised it as "simple, clear, direct, devoid of affectations, and fast-moving." He included it in his "small list of creditable modern novels using the first Americans as theme." Several decades later, long out of print but not forgotten, The Surrounded is still considered one of the best works of fiction by or about Native Americans

The hawk is hungry & other stories by D'Arcy McNickle( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These sixteen stories--ten of which have not been previously published--represent the work of one of the most influential Native American writers of the twentieth century--held by many to be the most important Native American to write fiction before N. Scott Momaday. Birgit Hans's introductory essay provides a brief biography of McNickle, sets the stories in the context of his better known work, and provides insights into their literary significance. Together, they constitute a collection essential to an adequate understanding of McNickle and of the development of Native American fiction

D'Arcy McNickle's The hungry generations : the evolution of a novel by D'Arcy McNickle( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considering the 1936 publication date of The Surrounded, McNickle certainly belongs to that group of early Native American novelists comprised of Mourning Dove, John Joseph Mathews, John Milton Oskison, and others, but the book was followed by thirty years of silence and only with the publication of N. Scott Momaday's House Made of Dawn in 1968 did Native American literature gain momentum once more. The canon has grown rapidly ever since, and a number of Native American writers have become an integral part of it. Unfortunately, the richness of contemporary writings has pushed earlier novels by Native American writers into the background and, frequently, are read only for their historic interest." "McNickle does not fit comfortably into this early group of Native American writers though, as his non-assimilationist plot, writing style, and technique set The Surrounded apart from novels such as Co-ge-we-a (1927) and Sundown (1934). A look at "The Hungry Generations," an earlier, handwritten manuscript version of The Surrounded in the McNickle Papers at the Newberry Library, shows clearly what a triumph The Surrounded really was. D'Arcy McNickle's The Hungry Generations is an important addition for those readers interested in McNickle and Montana and cultural history, as well as those interested in early Native American literature."--Jacket
