Abstract:

"From his first travels in southwestern Indian country as a Harvard undergraduate to his final visit to the Taos pueblo shortly before his death, Oliver La Farge was involved with American Indians and engaged in a dedicated struggle to improve their lot. What began for him as a 'pet charity'--membership on the board of directors of a citizens' organization to help the Indians--became an all-consuming interest. His lifelong devotion to the Indian cause drained much energy that might otherwise have gone into his writing, yet it enriched his talent profoundly and gave rise to his most successful books, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Laughing Boy."--Book jacket.
