A Swallow Press Book
By Frank Waters
“By far the finest novel of American Indian life I have ever read.”
Saturday Review of Literature
“[Waters's] long and wide experience… has given him an insight to the ways of the Indian, perhaps not exceeded by any other novelist.”
Los Angeles Times
“It will live as one of the important pieces of literature on the American Indian.”
San Francisco Chronicle
“A rich fusion of myth and reality, both a detailed rendering of Pueblo Indian rituals, ceremonies and beliefs and an account of the Indians' political struggle to get back their ancestral lands.”
The story of Martiniano, The Man Who Killed the Deer, is a timeless story of Pueblo Indian sin and redemption, and of the conflict between Indian and white laws; written with a poetically charged beauty of style, a purity of conception, and a thorough understanding of Indian values.
Frank Waters (1902–1995), one of the finest chroniclers of the American Southwest, wrote twenty–eight works of fiction and nonfiction.
