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, Schaefer considered The Canyon one of his 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.
