The Silver Canyon, A Tale of the Western Plains


This book is by an author who revels in putting his heroes into tense and dangerous situations, and never more so than in theWestern plains of North America in the middle of the nineteenth century.The Indians were armed with rifles, and had immense prowess at creepingup unseen upon their enemies.In addition there are rattlesnakes, bears, and other nasty things. The young hero, Bart for short, is out there with his uncle, seeking for a new life.And they all but got the next life out of it!After enduring these and other privations, they find a massive rocky eminence, which they find to have a good lode of silver in it, one which had been mined before, perhaps thousands of years before.It is also fairly difficult to get up to the summit of this great hill, which makes it easier to defend, but when you do get up there you find a large area of good grazing for their cattle and horses.So they make their home there, but of course the Indian attacks continue right up to almost the end of the book. According to Wikipedia: "George Manville Fenn (January 3, 1831, Pimlico - August 26, 1909, Isleworth) was a British writer. He worked as a teacher in Lincolnshire, until he became printer, editor and publisher of various magazines. He had eight children with his wife Susanna Leake, whom he had married in 1855. Most of his work consists of adventure stories for young readers, featuring Explorers, Smugglers, young Adventurers and Seamen. His adult novels offer critical social commentary on Victorian England, especially reconsidering economic questions."
