The story of Martiniano, the man who killed the deer, is a timeless story of Pueblo Indian sin and redemption, and of the conflict between Indian and white laws; written with a poetically charged beauty of style, a purity of conception, and a thorough understanding of Indian values.

About the Author:

Frank Waters, (1902–1995), is the finest chronicler, in both fiction and non-fiction, of the vast American Southwest. He writes out of long and close association with the American Indian and with the Spanish-American, and with deep understanding of their cultures.

Review:

By far the finest novel of American Indian life I have ever read.”
Saturday Review of Literature

[Waters's] long and wide experience has given him an insight to the ways of the Indian, perhaps not exceeded by any other novelist.”
Los Angeles Times

A rich fusion of myth and reality, both a detailed rendering of Pueblo Indian rituals, ceremonies and beliefs and an account of the Indians' political struggle to get back their ancestral lands.”
Westways
