Avoid Being a Pony Express Rider! by Tom RatliffGet ready...It's 1860, and a new mail company is looking for riders. It's tough work, but well paid. Do you have what it takes to be a Pony Express Rider? You are a sixteen-year-old boy, the son of a pioneer family living in Kansas Territory. In the spring of 1860, you read an ad for a direct mail delivery service that will connect the eastern United States with California. How do you survive the 1,966 miles of the Pony Express? Humorous cartoon-style illustrations and speech bubbles bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events. Each spread comes complete with a Handy Hint box, offering a clever tip on how to survive whatever ghastly situation you've found yourself in.
