Synopsis

Circle of Wonder A Native American Christmas Story by N.Scott Momaday

Drawing on childhood memories of Christmas in a New Mexican village, Momaday produces a poetic story that skilfully blends Christian and Native American traditions. On Christmas Eve, Tolo, a lonely mute boy, is drawn by the spirit of his beloved grandfather to a bonfire in the mountains, where he shares a 'circle of wonder and good will' with an elk, a wolf and an eagle. His heart fills with love for his family, for the Christ child and for all creation, and in this brief glimpse of the interconnectedness of all life his loneliness is banished forever. Features Momaday's singular, impressionistic artwork.

Reviews

A truly beautiful book, by a great author. . . . Every youngster (and oldster!) will be enthralled by the paintings of Momaday (Kiowa, by way of Jemez) and his tale of a Pueblo Christmas.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
