Dick Rutherford (The Colonel) and Christy Deever head west to seek their fortune after The Colonel gambles away all his money at a horserace. Terence Aselford's performance transports listeners right back to the Old West, with a rough-and-tumble dramatization that recalls the tough masculinity of the American frontier in the 19th century. Classic western novelist Max Brand's The Stone that Shines takes listeners on a journey to the heart of America, where the Colonel and Christy encounter the Mandan Indians and possibly, themselves.
