    In a rhyming story, Caroline Starr Rose has written the rip roaring story of the legendary Bill Cody who rode for the Pony Express in his teens, and it is told that he met a challenge one time out of need He supposedly rode 21 horses in 21 hours and forty minutes straight Joe Lillinton s illustrations fill the pages with never ending energy as young Bill Cody, later known as Buffalo Bill, rode and rode again The rule was that the riders changed rides at certain stations, but Bill got to the stations this time only to find there was no rider ready, so he changed horses often Trade a Morgan for a Pinto, Bronco for a Thoroughbred Racing, flying, ever riding, hurry, hurry on ahead The book will be great for anyone studying western history, Buffalo Bill or other western figures There s a great added piece from the author at the end.
