This is the third 'We the People' book I bought for him and he loves all three (Navajo Code Talkers (We the People: Modern America series) and The Transcontinental Railroad (We the People: Expansion and Reform series) (We the People (Compass Point Books Paperback)) were the other two). In particular with The Pony Express, he was quite fascinated by the history and stories, to the point he has gone looking for more to read. Interesting stories, and fun illustrations made this right for him.
As with the other 'We the People' books (so far) the last few pages are dedicated to a glossary, a list of fun facts, a timeline, a list of important people, a list of resources (library, on-line, snail mail and the National Park Service site) and an index.
Very informative and presented in such a way that my 8 year old was entranced.
