Pony Express Riders of the Wild West
Individual accounts of danger and excitement are retold in this fascinating book. The Pony Express was the brainstorm of William H. Russell and, although it only existed for eighteen months, the 10-day route was filled with such obstacles as blizzards and mountain ranges that it is still a legend today.
