    1. While most young readers will respond to stories of the early American West, there is little more exciting or educational than a factual account of those days. OFF LIKE THE WIND, The First Ride of the Pony Express is a prime example of a true account that holds more thrills than any fictional cowboy tale could possibly offer.Illustrated by Layne Johnson's oil paintings this is a book that young ones will want in their libraries and perhaps some day pass on to children of their own.

    2. This is the story of the first ride of the Pony Express. The Pony Express only ran for a little over a year but was a remarkably fast way to get mail from the midwest to California. It cost $5 per 1/2 ounce. The trail was 1840 miles and went through enemy (Native American) territory and the wild west.

    3. Nicely illustrated book about the first ride of the Pony Express. Of course, it's not until the author's note that you realize that the "first ride" is an amalgamation of stories told throughout the entire Pony Express's history, so it gets knocked off a bit on accuracy.
