AMERICAN MILESTONES THE PONY
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!
