Product Description:

Back when mail was delivered by stagecoach, one man had a fantastic idea. William H. Russell thought that they could develop a system of men and horses to deliver the mail all across the west in much less time than it took the stagecoaches. He convinced his two business partners, and they set about starting the Pony Express. This colorful book tells of the beginning, purpose, adventures, and ending of this fantastic system. In the back of the book is a list of the 182 men who rode to deliver mail throughout the west. - Melissa

Category Description for Veritas History Programs:

Instead of isolating Bible and Christian history from what was happening in the rest of the world, the folks at Veritas aim to incorporate it. They offer four different history time periods (each aimed at a different grade level and designed to take one school year) which take students from creation to the present.

The song is sung by a woman with a pleasant voice at varying tempos and is designed as a type of auditory time line. The history cards are fantastic! They have many interesting facets (the more you study them, the more you learn). The cards from the various time periods are color coded and numbered - there are 32 cards in each pack. If the cards also relate to Bible history they have another color and another number. Each card has a picture (usually in full color) representing what it is about. For example, the card for Creation has a reproduction of the Creation of the sun and moon from the Sistine Chapel Ceiling by Michelangelo. Many of the other pictures on the other cards are famous paintings as well. Each card has a
