Everyone has heard of the Pony Express, but did you know it only existed for eighteen months? Eighty men, no younger than 11 and no older than eighteen, were hired and between 400 and 500 horses were bought. While the company existed, the riders carried 34,753 pieces of mail and rode 650,000 miles. Legendary characters like Buffalo Bill and Wild Bill Hickok endured the hazards of weather, treacherous land and bandits. Read this book and learn why the company started and what led to its eventual downfall.
