Historian Kit Sinclair tries to hire tribal chief Hawke Lonechief, reputed to be the best guide available, to take her to the ancient ruins in Desolation Canyon. For a research paper, Kit wants to locate a lost "city of gold," and Hawke is the only man she knows who can find it. Hawke experienced tragedy in the canyon, so he initially refuses but relents when Kit threatens to go in alone. Suspicious things start to happen, but Kit marches on. Forsaken Canyon (4.5), a sharp, creative story by Margaret Daley, has great suspense from beginning to end.
