The Hundredth Meridian

Two Trails to the Rainbow

It was in the spring of 1925 that a young Easterner named Clyde Kluckhohn, on sabbatical from Princeton to spend a year working on a cattle ranch near Ramah, New Mexico, first learned from a Zuñi Indian of the natural phenomenon called Nonne-zoche Not-se-lid (meaning “Rainbow of Stone”), standing at the very end of the Navajo world but considered by those few who had seen it more wonderful than the Great Cañon itself.
