In "Trap of Gold", Wetherton has been three months out of town when he finds his first "color", in a crumbling granite upthrust with a vein of quartz that is literally laced with gold! The problem is that the rocks are unstable, and taking out the quartz might just bring the whole thing tumbling down.
In "Trail to Pie Town", Dusty Barron has ridden his stallion at full gallop out of town, leaving behind him a man bleeding on the floor of a saloon. Maybe he could have explained himself, if two other men hadn't appeared and gone for their guns when they saw him. So Dusty took off. But the dead man had relatives in the area, and now it looks like he is going to be facing a clan war.

"[Louis L'Amour] made the modern Western a national pastime." (Smithsonian)
I love Louis L'Amour books, and can't believe he wrote "Trap of Gold"... there was nothing to it. "Trail to Pie Town" wasn't bad, but would have been better with another narrator.
Overall 4 Star rating is for "Trail to Pie Town".
The narration was great, and the story line made you feel like you where there or wanted to be!
It was a true western
The passion he places in the way he reads for each of the voices
