Based on a Cheyenne legend, this novel holds universal appeal as it explores the theme of a man s conflict with his culture. It is the story of how Little Bear, a Cheyenne warrior who opposes war, reconciles the conflict between his personal values and the demands of his tribe. The dilemma faced by Little Bear gives rise to a story that is at once a compelling adventure tale, an authentic description of Indian life and ritual, and a parable of self-realization.
First published in 1953, The Canyon remained one of Schaefer's personal favorites. This new release will be welcomed by Schaefer s enduring admirers and by new Western literature enthusiasts. It is a classic not to be missed."
