1 Review

First published in 1954 and long out of print, this novel of pre-Hispanic Indian life in the Southwest combines the authenticity of an anthropological report with the suspense of a mystery novel. The author, best known as an anthropologist during his lifetime, is now recognized as a major Native American novelist. Hitherto virtually unknown,Runner in the Sunis sure to take its place next to McNickle'sThe Surrounded,also available from UNM Press, as a classic of Native American fiction.

Review: Runner in the Sun (Land of the Free)

User Review  - Steven Salaita - Goodreads

One of the first young adult novels published by a Native writer. It's not a brilliant book, but it's solid, and definitely different than most of the stuff dealing with Indigenous peoples in the genre. Read full review
