Creek, Nathan - Canyon of the Angels. Ward Lock, 1966. On June 24th, 1772, a Franciscan Mission in Arizona was wiped out by a band of Apache Indians. From that day the canyon in which the Mission stood was looked upon by the local Mexicans as a place of horror and great danger and they never went there. Yet they gave it a beautiful and serene name: Canion de los Angeles. The Canyon of the Angels had claimed four victims in eight months when Marshal Joe Elliott arrived at the local township of Eden. To the Mexicans of the area, Los Angeles had claimed victims for trespassing in the sacred canyon, but for the Marshal this meant that some bad men were holed up - holed up under a curtain of ancient superstition. Sided by bart Freeman, Eden's sheriff, Joe faced the dead canyon. But Bart was old and Bart was wounded - and then Joe was alone in the search - alone to face unknown odds...
