For thousands of years, the lonely canyon had only known wind and rain, wild animals, and the odd native hunter. Then a trapper discovered a gold nugget, and everything changed in an instant.
A town called Confusion appeared in six days... and it could vanish on the seventh, consumed by the flames of lawlessness and violence. On one hand, there are those who only understand brute force. On the other hand, there are men who want law and order but are willing to use a noose to get it. Matt Coburn and Dick Felton stand between them, one a hardened realist and the other an idealist hoping to make a fortune from the muddy hillside. Felton and Coburn are outmanned and outgunned, and they can't afford to be outmanoeuvred. Because as the two unlikely allies face corruption, betrayal, and murder in their attempt to tame a town where the discovery of gold can mean either a life-changing fortune or a death sentence, they realize that any move they make could be their last.
Lost Treasures of Louis L'Amour is a project aimed at releasing some of the author's more unusual manuscripts from the family archives.
