When Colton Wescott sees this sign for the Pony Express, he thinks he has the solution to his problems. He's stuck with his ma and two younger sisters on the wrong side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, with no way to get across. They were on the wagon train heading to California when Pa accidentally shot Colton and then galloped away. Ma is sick, and Colton needs money to pay the doctor. He'd make good money as a Pony rider. he also needs to get to California to deliver freedom papers to Ma's sister, a runaway slave. The Pony Express could get him there too...
Does Colton have what it takes to be a Pony Express rider? And if so, will traveling the dangerous route over the mountains bring him closer to family, freedom, and everything he holds dear?

WOW! After reading this book I just had to read any other books written by the same author. I gave a copy of this book to a good friend for their kids to read. I hope they enjoy it as much as I did. Read full review
I liked this book because it made you feel like you were an out law in a desert town. Also why this book was amazing was because the events were so detailed and worded so good that it made the story come alive. Finally why this book was amazing is because of the use of western language.
