West Like Lightning: Jim DeFelice Talk and Book Signing

When: Sat., May 12, 1:30-2:30 p.m. 2018

An exciting tale of daring young men pushing limits to the extremes across the vast, rugged, and unsettled American West. It was the most audacious get-rich quick scheme in American history, an attempt to monopolize freight, transportation, and financial services through half the country. So what if it involved a swindle of hundreds of thousands of dollars, bribes to government officials, and the occasional loss of an ear or other body part? It was the Pony Express.
