Summary
Though it operated for less than a year and a half, the Pony Express lives on indelibly in the American consciousness. This famous mail service operated from April 1860 to October 1861 and was eventually replaced by the establishment of telegraph lines across the country. Before that, the Pony Express provided the fastest means of communication from the East to West coasts, transporting letters, newspapers and even small packages by horseback from St. Joseph, Missouri, across the Great Plains, over the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevada to Sacramento, California. An estimated 400 horses and 80 riders were used by the Pony Express at any one time, with one of the most famous riders being a young Buffalo Bill Cody. This volume from 1913 provides one of the most comprehensive histories of the operation
