Cheyenne comes upon a campfire in the basin. He meets a young man who jumps him suspicious he could be a rustler. When he takes his gun and rides off he is surprised to hear screams from where he just left the young man and goes back only to find he has been crushed to death by something that also doesn't seem to like campfires. When he takes the body into town, Cheyenne discovers there is a twin brother who is now looking for revenge for his death! Written by DrDOS

'Big Ghost Basin',certainly a thrill.
11 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, this is the episode of Cheyenne, " Big Ghost Basin ', that has been haunting me for years. The previous commentaries are correct in saying this particular show had me in nightmares for a while. Being a Baby Boomer and watching many westerns on TV at the time, this hour of 'Cheyenne' truly stood out. Thanks for the memories. Clint Walker, Fess Parker, and most of the Warner Bros. old west productions, hopefully will endure the test of time, they don't make them like they used to. The bear in 'Big Ghost Basin' seemed to instill some fear in Cheyenne Bodie, which was rare in the series,but he won out in the end. Clint Walker, should have received a super star status thru the years, and never should have been stereotyped as he was. Cheyenne's character as a larger than life hero, re-assured me that all was right and secure in the world.
