Deep in Cheyenne territory, years prior to the arrival of European settlers, a war hungry group of Cheyenne Indians meet and plan to attack a rival tribe. One young Cheyenne, Little Bear, refuses to fight. Little Bear has earned admiration for his courage and skill in hunting, but now, as a rite of passage into adulthood, he must spend two weeks alone in the wilds, eating only what nature provides. During this retreat, in the dark of night, he falls precipitously into a deep canyon. Is Little Bear tough enough to survive? An adventure story that unfolds with quiet intensity, The Canyon is a Jack Schaefer classic not to be missed. First published in 1953, The Canyon was one of Schaefer's personal favorites.
