Phantom Canyonby Joe Bob Newman
Sam must walk
Sam Turner is tracking his runaway brother, when he see's a sign post, "Phantom Canyon!" Almost immediately Sam's horse steps in a gopher hole and breaks his leg. Sam has no choice but to shoot the horse. Now he is really stranded. With a saddle, his bags and rifle, he is in a real dilemma. The canyon is beautiful but full of mystery and surprises.
Sam must walk into this mysterious canyon and hope that someone comes along and saves him. He knows that a man without a horse can not last long. Then he meets a very old Indian, who has a horse for sale. Sam strikes up a friendship with Two Dogs. Together, they trail the lost brother, and find that he is being "chased" by Mexican Bandido's, who think that he is carrying much gold.
Sam and Two Dogs must find a way to rescue the runaway brother without getting themselves killed in the process. In a scene right out of "The Alamo" the brothers and the Indian, must fight off a savage attack of the Bandido's. An explosive climax occurs when an inept US Army Calvary shows up, but are unable to do anything, but sit and watch as the brothers defend themselves.

Joe writes a good old fashioned western adventure with all the touch points: bandits, calvary, ranchers, lost conquistadors, and many more. He starts off with brief descriptions of the key characters, both their physical appearance and the psychological issues that plague them, then he gets right into the action.
This book is a great action packed western adventure. The characters are well displayed and come to life. it is a must read book!
A real good western. I liked the characters, and the story creative. Worth a read.
