Product Description:

Having been born and raised in the American West, I am fascinated by the legacy that we have from the events that shaped the West. One of those events in history was the Pony Express. Ralph Moody traces the history of the famous mail delivery system over its short lifespan from April 1860 to October 1861. Readers will travel with the first ever rider of the Express from Missouri, journey with other riders who braved the prairies and snow, and learn how the riders dealt with hostile Indians and wild animals. Moody reveals Buffalo Bill's involvement with the Pony Express, and how he got his name. The author also examines the riders of the Express in the different regions it operated, such as the Mormon and Midwest riders. Included throughout are illustrations and maps. When readers finish, they will feel they have journeyed the trail themselveswith all the cold and heat, snow and dust, and sights and sounds. 183 pgs, pb. John
