Dick Rutherford, known simply as the Colonel, had set out into the West to find his fortune, accompanied only by his young companion, Christy Deever. But it looked like the frontier would provide more danger than money...until the Colonel and Christy met Stone-That-Shines, a Mandan warrior who possessed a medicine stone that gave him his name. As soon as the Colonel got a close look at the medicine stone, he knew immediately what made it shine—a rich vein of quartz gold. The source of that stone would be the answer to his quest. But first the Colonel and Christy had to escape the Mandan chief and his determined warriors. They were after something too—the Colonel's hide.

Reviews

worth the listen by JoAnn (Posted on 11/10/2016)
Loved it.
Listen to alot of westerns and I loved the story. As a writer, I would have ended the story differently, but it was his story to tell and not mine. I still liked it and will listen to it again in the future.
Surprise Ending by James (Posted on 5/8/2015)
Got to say this book start out reading like a children bedtime story. Very little cussing and just the good old southern guys on a gold hunt. Very low key. The in the last chapter the author turns into Mr Hyde. Everyone gets killed that are in the way guys (sorry forgot the names, been a while since i listened to the book) returning back to the south. Boo Hiss I would have stayed out west. Anyways good book. I gave it 4 stars mainly because the the extreme in the story telling.

Great read
A story that takes you inside the characters. by john (Posted on 1/20/2015)
You start with a good, interesting story, and add performances that bring the characters to life. It makes you understand why the characters do what they do.
More substance by Dan (Posted on 7/23/2014)
"The Stone That Shines" started out slow but then picked up toward the end. This story has a bit of a different feel from other westerns in that it's doesn't have the typical gunslingers and shootouts. While there is action, this has more the feel of a thinking man's novel.
Such good storytelling! by Colleen (Posted on 7/11/2014)
I love this book.

Bobby Aselford, Rick Rohan, Thomas Keegan and Danny Gavigan all gave really interesting and appealing performances in their roles. And the GraphicAudio sound design totally did its job in placing my mind in that time and place, in those locations with those people.

But what really made it for me was Terence's storytelling as the narrator. Full disclosure: I'm another GraphicAudio director and have narrated 100s of books (here, and elsewhere). It's a special treat to listen to a man like Terence Aselford, who is such a superior narrator to begin with, tell us a story that he so clearly loves himself. I mean, what could be better?

Also, how cool is it that Terence's son played his narrator self as a younger man? Very cool, indeed, that's how cool.
