West Like Lightning: The Brief, Legendary Ride of the Pony Express

Jim DeFelice

Conceived in 1860 as a means of getting mail across America despite the 1,500 miles of searing deserts, snow-covered mountains, and understandably angry Native Americans, the Pony Express became a part of our country's mythology as young men with names like “Bronco Charlie” and “Sawed-Off Jim” galloped over a vast and unforgiving landscape. It lasted barely two years (the telegraph took over), but it was a glorious demonstration of American vitality. "Fans of the Old West will find many delightful nuggets in this fast-moving story," writes Publishers Weekly. By the co-author of Chris Kyle's American Sniper.
