Product Description
For 18 months in 1860 and 1861, the Pony Express performed one of the most amazing feats of the Old West. A group of daring young riders and fast horses delivered the mail over 1,800 miles-from Missouri to California-in just 10 days! Learn how they rode day and night to connect the West with the East. This book includes: Founders of the Pony Express; Need for Mail Service; Prime Ponies; Pony Express Stations; What's in that Mailbag?; Famous Riders; Takeover by the Telegraph; Hands-on Activities; Reproducible Activities; Glossary; Fascinating Facts; Timeline; And Lots More! The Pony Express is perhaps the most compelling story of America's "can do" spirit that shares not only the history of a still "wild and wooly" West but a prime example of the ingenuity and "stick-to-it" determination that built this country. Grab your saddle-and ride along with the Pony Express in the fun, informative, and "just can't put it down" book!
