The Story of the Pony Express - Glenn D. Bradley

This is a well written account of the "Pony Express." The author emphasises the importance of "Pony Express" to the Union during the American Civil War. Includes accounts describing the exploits of Robert "Pony Bob" Haslam, and William F. "Buffalo Bill" Cody. This is my 21st Project Guttenberg title.
