Description
It's 1860, and a new mail service from St. Joseph, Missouri, to Sacramento, California, is starting up. Riders will have to cope with long hours in the saddle, floods, snow, outlaws, and even a brief war with Native Americans. Have you got what it takes?

Does being a Ninja Warrior or a Pony Express Rider sound fun and exciting to you? Get ready to discover the not-so-pretty truth! In this lively series, YOU are the main character in some of history's goriest, darkest, and most horrific moments. Hilarious illustrations, captions, and sidebars leave no doubt that you simply wouldn't want to be there.
