WEST LIKE LIGHTNING tells the history of the Pony Express, a mail service started by three men just before the Civil War that promised to deliver mail across the dangerous and sparsely populated western half of the United States in just ten days. During the research, the author actually travelled along the route to experience it. Thrilling and informative, the book features legendary American figures like Mark Twain as well as lesser known icons, all who had a vital role in the success of this great example of American ingenuity and perseverance.
