The Pony Express

Imagine waiting months to get your mail or find out the news. That was the reality for thousands of settlers in the western United States in 1860. At that time, the only way to deliver mail was by boat or overland by stagecoach. These journeys covered thousands of miles and took weeks or months to complete. Then, in 1860, the Pony Express burst across the West. Its teams of brave young men riding fast horses delivered the mail in record time and delighted settlers all over the country. Was the Pony Express a success? Did its riders really face death and danger at every turn? Find out the truth in this exciting tale of a treasured part of American life.
