Jimmy Spoon is bored with life in Salt Lake City. After spending years with the Shoshoni Indians, Jimmy wants more adventure than his father's store can offer. When he sees an ad in the paper from Russell, Majors, and Waddell looking for young men to ride for the Pony Express, Jimmy sees that this could be the chance he's been looking for. He meets the qualifications- young, slim, able to ride, willing to risk life and limb-, so he signs up. Jimmy is stationed at Ruby Valley, Nevada, where he will ride 50-100 miles between stations to deliver the mail. It is not an easy life. Jimmy must face Indians, weather, outlaws, settlers and the threat of war.

Good adventure for boys who like westerns.
