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. Download and start listening now!
