Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The Pony Express and its courageous young riders are the primary focus for this graphic book from the "Nonfiction Graphic History and Biography Books" series. The text highlights the Pony Express as an integral part of the life and times of our ancestors who sought for a future in our American past. Written at a third grade readability level, this text offers insight into the necessities of life in the early days of our country. While showcasing the adventurous, courageous, and dedicated men of the Pony Express, the text offers educators an excellent opportunity to depart from the ordinary history text. As a supplemental book, it will hold the interest of a middle grade reader with its graphic qualities and fast paced action. The opportunities for extension are wide ranging. The book includes a "More About" section, a glossary, Internet sites, and a bibliography. This book could supplement both literature and history units becoming an essential component to your classroom, school, or public library. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 9 up.
