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
