Otherwise the story was well written, a mixture of fiction and fact but all of it believable. It was a good introduction to our study of the Pony Express and the realities of life back in that era.
Jimmy Spoon and the Pony Express picks up a few years after Jimmy's return to his family, and the choices he makes to put himself closer to the Shoshone people and his love, the beautiful Nahanee. While I enjoyed this book, I did not think it was as compelling as the first. It did describe with accuracy the life of a Pony Express rider, and the children were fascinated by the facts given about how long it took to get news across the country in those days.Yes, it also contained some life lessons to be shared and discussed, but just didn't have the same richness as the first.Still, I would recommend it to finish up the story, left mid-cycle in The Legend of Jimmy Spoon.

The mail in America hast to be delivered by young men who can take the blistering heat of the desert and its freezing cold winter for miles and miles, lots of boys tried and failed at doing this but young Jimmy spoon fits the bell perfectly. Having lived with the Shoshoni Indians for many years Jimmy can ride better than any other white boy, but he soon finds that he signed up for more than he bargained for, angry tribes along the trail, bandits, and just the feeling of a trespasser will test this boys abilities.
I liked it for its adventure, its explanatory on everything, its wording, and how it actually seems like it did happen.
You should read it because it’s awesome, some survival tips, action, and a lot of intense parts.
