James Welch : path finder to the center of our hearts

Today wonder | wander | world pays tribute in honor of Native American author James Welchconsidered a founder of the Native American Renaissance

His novel Fools Crow (1986) received several national literary awards, and his debut novel Winter in the Blood (1974) was adapted as a film by the same name, released in 2013. 

In 1997 Welch received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Native Writers' Circle of the Americas

A Google Doodle by artist Sophie Daio was created in honor of what would have been his 76th birthday, watching over the Google home page in a drawing that evokes both his Native American heritage and his award-winning literary career.
