Lucky Luke Vol. 46: The Pony Express
Luke gets to help set-up the legendary Pony Express! In 1860, getting from Missouri to California on the West Coast took a long, long time - to say nothing of a certain degree of courage. Annoyed at the delay in communication, the federal government offers a grant to whoever can solve the problem and set-up a fast, reliable mail system linking East and West. In response, entrepreneur W.H. Russell founds the Pony Express company: fearless men riding day and night, changing horses at way stations. But not everyone likes that idea!
