N. Scott Momaday reads from across his body of work, sharing excerpts from his novel The Ancient Child (1989) together with poems from his soon-to-be-published In the Presence of the Sun: Stories and Poems, 1961-1991 (1992). After opening the reading with three humorous epitaphs, Momaday discusses Set-angya, a 19th century Kiowa chief who reappears throughout his work.
