SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL: exciting ... those who have not read Legend will certainly want to do so after finishing this one. Jimmy knew from the moment he laid eyes on the ad, that he had to ride for the Pony Express: Wanted: Young, skinny, wiry fellows not over 18. Must be expert riders, willing to risk death daily, orphans preferred. Wages $24 a week ... And no one was more qualified than Jimmy. He had lived with the Shoshoni for years and had learned their ways. No white boy could ride like Jimmy Spoon. But fifty miles a day isn't an easy ride -- even for him. And the trails are dangerous. Living conditions are primitive; there are outlaws, angry tribes, blistering heat, and below-zero winters. And all along, Jimmy yearns to return to his Shoshoni family, especially to rekindle his friendship with the lovely Nahanee. ** A continuation of the true story of Elijah Nicholas Wilson.
