The Stone That Shines
This is a short (5 hr ) book and was a nice change of pace from the 1700's sea stories I had been listening too. Max Brand is known for his fast pace western stories. Aselford did a great job narrating the book. Enjoyed the historical information on the Mandan Indians. Look forward again in the future to another Brand story.
