Frank Waters · Man and Mystic
Edited by Vine Deloria Jr.

“In addition to his accomplishments as a talented novelist, a thorough historian, and an excellent essayist, Frank Waters is that rare breed of man who has merged heart and mind early in his life and moved forward to confront ultimate questions. This dilemma of faith and heritage, religion and identity, and commitment and comfort has never been resolved intellectually.

“This tribute to a giant of southwestern letters has the likes of Max Evans, Rudolfo A. Anaya, Alvin M. Josephy, Jr., and others remembering Waters and his work. A perceptive essay by his wife, Barbara, and transcriptions of several interviews and round table discussions make this a resonant treasure for Waters admirers.”
