Three Plays: The Indolent Boys, Children of the Sun, and The Moon in Two Windows
N. Scott Momaday


One of the first university publishers established west of the Mississippi River, the University of Oklahoma Press boasts nearly eight decades of continuous operation and a distinguished reputation worldwide. Its books on indigenous peoples of the Western hemisphere are among its most notable, and the recent release of N. Scott Momaday: Three Plays: The Indolent Boys, Children of the Sun, and The Moon in Two Windows (2007) is no exception. The two stage plays and single screenplay that comprise the volume are published here for the first time. All three works provide important insights into Kiowa history and culture and reflect the impressive repertoire of N. Scott Momaday, renowned poet, novelist, storyteller, artist, playwright, educator, scholar, and philanthropist, who masterfully continues his "pursuit of the endless possibilities of language."
