The Ancient Child

  • The Ancient Child

The Ancient Child by M. Scott Momaday One paragraph in Momaday’s book, seems to me, to describe our area of the American Southwest more than any other piece of literature. I was lucky enough to hear Momaday present this book at Ft. Lewis some years back when it was a new release. Momaday told the audience that while he was writing in Amherst, Massachusetts he would, often for a break, visit the Emily Dickinson museum. One of Emily 

Dickinson’s dresses on display is a long white dress with the third button down missing. The main character in this book is Grey who when she goes into trances will be wearing a long white dress with the third button down missing.

Silver River Adobe Inn Bed and Breakfast

Rustic elegance awaits you at the Silver River Adobe Inn Bed and Breakfast which was built in the traditional architecture of northern New Mexico and offers a view from each room of the San Juan River. Just up stream the Animas River joins the San Juan River and on the corner of our property is the confluence with the La Plata River, hence the local name of Totah, the meeting place of three rivers. The San Juan River holds 50% of New Mexico’s surface flowing water, rather a miracle for this high desert plateau. Many guests exclaim their delight seeing so much water after hiking and driving through this portion of the American Southwest, called Indian Country by the early Santa Fe Railroad. The Anasazi Ruins of Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, Aztec Ruins and Mesa Verde bring tourists from all over the world to the Four Corners. The splendid geology left to us of Shiprock, Monument Valley, Grand Canyon, and Canyon lands has been used time and again. Take home a taste of the beauty of our sun and geology.
