Before the Pony Express began in 1860, western settlers had no way to hear regular news from their families or the government. The Pony Express, for a time, was the fastest link between the East and the West. Author Anita Louise McCormick traces the history of the Pony Express as it provided reliable communication for Americans as they settled in the West. Demonstrating the bravery of Pony Express riders as they crossed deserts, mountains, and hostile American Indian territory, McCormick tells the story of how the Pony Express became a legendary part of American culture.
