Condition: In great condition. The dust jacket has wear around the edges, however the cover and inside of the book are in like-new condition (see pictures) and the book appears to have been rarely used.
Forward by Samuel Hopkins Adams: The record here set down is intended to be faithful to period and event without being strictly factual. Detailed data on the Pony Express are scanty, vague, and often contradictory. With a few exceptions it is not even known with certainty what men rode what routes. Permitting myself a certain license of treatment, the better to round out the picture, I have attempted to present in broad outline the character and atmosphere of an enterprise which, short-lived though it was, proved to be a vital link in the development of our transportation system.
