When the government offers to pay farmer Eben Smith to bury his crops, Smith gets sick of Depression economics and sets off to the city to barter his goods. But instead of the city, he finds a crossroads of dimensions. The bartering seems good—he can trade apples for brandy, brandy for guns, and guns for gold—but the wheeling and dealing soon gets out of Eben's control. This tale is among the most imaginative of Hubbard’s Golden Age Stories, rendered with lush music and Hollywood sound design. (The battle scenes will have listeners hopping out of their seats.) Also included is "Borrowed Glory," a cross between “Cinderella” and DR. FAUSTUS, and "The Devil's Rescue," about a mariner rescued by a dark master.
