The Pony Express: a thrilling and truthful history

by William Lightfoot Visscher. Temporarily out of print.

With other sketches and incidents of those stirring times. Chapters include "The Gold Fever". "The Most Unique and Romantic Mail Service Ever Organized", "Off Both Ways", "Famous Rides and Riders", "Pony Bob", "Buffalo Bill", "The Telegraph and the End". Tells why the service was needed, setting up the stations and riders, and starting the first ride in April of 1860. A ride that day of 20 miles in 59 minutes was recorded, part of a longer stretch traveled. Rides of 100 and more miles were not uncommon for riders, although horses were changed more frequently. The service lasted only about a year, but filled an important niche in America's history. Reprinted from 1908. Afterword by Merrill Mattes, National Park Service Historian.

Photos and drawings from the original and other early sources. 64 pages, map.

ISBN-10: 0-89646-062-2. ISBN-13: 978-0-89646-062-1. Order #: VIST0062 paper$5.95
