Those of us who complain about the postal system need to remember what it was like to send mail back in 1860. It took three weeks for stagecoaches to deliver mail from Missouri to California, and along the way drivers had to battle mountain snowstorms, desert heat, and countless other dangers. In April 1860, the first Pony Express riders were put to the test. Storyteller Cheryl Harness brings these legendary couriers vividly to life. Full color.
