The Pony Express lasted only nineteen months during 1860/ 1861. During that time about 200 riders covered over 600,000 miles carrying the mail from Missouri to points West (such as California). The founders of the Pony Express wanted their riders to have spiritual support and so provided each one with a Bible. Below are pictures of a Pony Express Bible from the WallBuilders library.
