Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by George Guidall

Classics • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1977

Jamake Highwater describes the hero, Anpao, as "an Indian Ulysses" and uses the structure of the vision quest to weave this story into a seamless garment of Native American oral history. George Guidall evokes the storyteller in hollow, whispered tones and proceeds in episodic fashion from the Plains Indian "river of memory." There are many changes of mood, tone and style in this gripping coming-of-age story. Guidall captures the wry Native American sense of humor in the story of Farting Boy and the power, majesty and isolation of the mighty Sun, as well as the treachery of the Moon. In this remarkable recording of Highwater's Newbery Award-winning book, Guidall gives the reader two Anpaos--the Indian youth seeking his identity and vocation and the archetypal Native American hero.
