The Pony Express was established as a rapid courier service between the East and the West, from St. Joseph Missouri to Sacramento, California. There were tens of thousands of people living and working in California that wanted news of what was happening in the East and who wanted to send letters and packages to friends, family members, and business partners living back east. But you may wonder: why did all those people move so far away from their friends and families back east in the first place? Why were they in California? Let's learn the answers in this exciting book!
Forget the pony I want a Llama. That is what I told my mama. Read along and see what else is said.
When eleven-year-old Elva finally finishes her chores on this beautiful summer morning, she hurries to the neighboring farm to see if her friend Linda can join her for an afternoon adventure. Come on along with the young Mennonite girls as they hitch up the pony, climb into the cart, and trot down the drive for a day filled with unexpected excitement. This charming story, the first in the Farm Life Series, is based on author Elva Hurst's growing-up years on the family farm and written for children from seven to eleven years old. Reminiscent of days gone by, this simple tale is full of good-hearted fun.
