Publisher's Description

This was how America communicated in the dangerous days of the Wild West: by a courier service demanding daring dashes through the badlands. The Pony Express was a long, tortuous gauntlet for the brave riders who dared to deliver. Riding with the Mail: The Story of the Pony Express is an amazing-but-true American adventure story. Read of the risks riders ran, from snakebites to bandits, and discover the historic changes that made this famous trail obsolete.
