Publisher's Summary

Spur-Award winning author Elmer Kelton delivers the sequel to his novel Slaughter with this powerful story of one man's search for peace on the war-stricken plains of the Wild West. 

In The Far Canyon, Kelton masterfully unveils for his listener the finality of the buffalo’s demise, the beginning of a time when cattle would replace the American bison on the Southern plains and ultimately end the Plains Indian culture. The novel reveals the history of the period, not in a general grand swoop of the pen, but rather, up close and personal, so his listeners can judge the impact of the period upon his characters.

Great listen

I really enjoyed this story but it left a little short on the closure to then go into another book. Hopefully some of the other lesser roll characters will be expanded upon as his would make a great series starter.
