Riders of the Pony ExpressAudiobook CD - 2011
Prior to the Civil War, the fastest mail between the West Coast and the East took almost thirty days by stagecoach along a southern route through Texas. Some Californians feared their state would not remain in the Union, separated so far from the free states. Then businessman William Russell invested in a way to deliver mail between San Francisco and the farthest western railroad in Saint Joseph, Missouri, across 2000 miles of mountains, deserts, and plains, guaranteed in ten days or less.
