The Pony Rider Boys in Texas Or The Veiled Riddle of the Plains: Frank Gee Patchin
Prior to the Civil War, the fastest mail between the West Coast and the East took almost thirty days by stagecoach along a southern route through Texas. Some Californians feared their state would not remain in the Union, separated so far from the free states. Then businessman William Russell invested in a way to deliver mail between San Francisco and the farthest western railroad, in Saint Joseph, Missouri - across two thousand miles of mountains, deserts, and plains - guaranteed in ten days or less. Russell hired eighty of the best and bravest riders, bought four hundred of the fastest and hardiest horses, and built relay stations along a central route - through modern-day Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and Nevada, to California. Informed by his intimate knowledge of horses and Western geography, Ralph Moody´s exciting account of the eighteen critical months that the Pony Express operated between April 1860 and October 1861 pays tribute to the true grit and determination of the riders and horses of the Pony Express. 1.

When legendary Charlie Siringo wrote this classic work, he was only 30 years old and had already spent half that life as a cowboy. With enduring wit, he tells the tale of long cattle drives, small-town beauties, meetings with Billy the Kid, and growing up on the Texas frontier. In plain language you´ll hear what it was like to live on the ´´hurricane deck of a Spanish pony´´ for months on end, earning enough to head into town and have a good time. Crisscrossing the Lone Star State, he lived a vanishing way of life. After only a few years of setting down, he was back in the saddle as a Pinkerton detective, a career he tells of in later books. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian V. Hunt.

The thrilling narrative history of one of the most enduring icons of the American West, the Pony Express, from the number-one New York Times best-selling co-author of American Sniper - an exciting tale of daring young men pushing limits to the extremes across the vast, rugged, and unsettled American West. In the spring of 1860 on the eve of a civil war that threatened to tear the country apart, two Americans conceived of an audacious plan for linking the nation’s two coasts, thereby joining its present with its future. All that stood in the way was a 1,900 miles of uninhabited desert, ice-capped mountains, oceanic plains roamed by hostile Indian tribes, whitewater-choked rivers, and rugged, unsettled frontier wilderness where ´´civilized´´ men where outnumbered a million to one by grizzlies, mountain lions, wolves, bison, rattlesnakes, and more. Many deemed their revolutionary scheme impossible. Run by the Central Overland California and Pikes Peak Express Company, the Pony Express as it came to be known, would use a relay system of daring horseback riders to ferry mail and small packages halfway across a continent in just 10 days. The challenges they faced were enormous, yet the Pony Express succeeded, delivering tens of thousands of letters at record speed. The service would quickly become the most direct means of communication between the Eastern United States and its Western territories, helping to firmly connect them to the Union. West Like Lightning traces the development of the Pony Express and follows it from its start in St. Joseph, Missouri - the edge of the civilized world in the mid-19th century - 1,500 miles west to Sacramento. Jim DeFelice - who traveled the Express’s route in his research - plumbs the legends, myths, and true facts of the service, viewing it within the context of the American story and exploring its lasting relevance today. Though the Pony Express was eclipsed by the telegraph in less than 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Pruden. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/harp/007166/bk_harp_007166_sample.mp3.

Nach einer behüteten Jugend führt der schwarze, stattliche Hengst Black Beauty in der liebevollen Umgebung eines Gutshofs das Leben eines Reit- und Kutschpferdes. Eines Tages jedoch muss sein Besitzer ihn aus Geldnot verkaufen und Black Beauty gerät in die Fänge skrupelloser und egoistischer Menschen. Ein Ende seiner grausamen Leidenszeit scheint schon nicht mehr in Sicht, da nimmt ein kleiner Junge sich seiner an und sein Leben eine Wende. Mit ihrem aufrüttelnden Tierroman ´Black Beauty´ schuf die englische Schriftstellerin Anna Sewell 1877 das große Vorbild aller modernen Pferdegeschichten.Inhalt (Wichtig: Die Texte laufen parallel, d. h. auf der einen Seite ist der deutsche Text, auf der gegenüberliegenden Seite der englische Text!)CHAPTER ONE 8 - My Early HomeCHAPTER TWO 14 - The HuntCHAPTER THREE 24 - My Breaking InCHAPTER FOUR 36 - Birtwick ParkCHAPTER FIVE 44 - A Fair StartCHAPTER SIX 56 - LibertyCHAPTER SEVEN 6 -GingerCHAPTER EIGHT 74 - Ginger´s Story ContinuedCHAPTER NINE 84 - MerrylegsCHAPTER TEN 92 - A Talk in the OrchardCHAPTER ELEVEN 108 - Plain SpeakingCHAPTER TWELVE 118 - A Stormy DayCHAPTER THIRTEEN 128 - The Devil´s TrademarkCHAPTER FOURTEEN 136 - James HowardCHAPTER FIFTEEN 144 - The Old OstlerCHAPTER SIXTEEN 152 - The FireCHAPTER SEVENTEEN 164 - John Manly´s TalkCHAPTER EIGHTEEN 174 - Going for the DoctorCHAPTER NINETEEN 184 - Only IgnoranceCHAPTER TWENTY 190 - Joe GreenCHAPTER TWENTY-ONE 198 - The PartingCHAPTER TWENTY-TWO 206 - EarlshallCHAPTER TWENTY-THREE 218 - A Strike for LibertyCHAPTER TWENTY-FOUR 228 - Lady Anne, or a Runaway HorseCHAPTER TWENTY-FIVE 246 - Reuben SmithCHAPTER TWENTY-SIX 256 - How it EndedCHAPTER TWENTY-SEVEN 264 - Ruined, and Going DownhillCHAPTER TWENTY-EIGHT 272 - A Job Horse and his DriversCHAPTER TWENTY-NINE 282 - CockneysInhaltKapitel Eins 9 - Mein erstes ZuhauseKapitel Zwei 15 - Die JagdKapitel Drei 25 - Das EinreitenKapitel Vier 37 - Birtwick ParkKapitel Fünf 45 - Ein gelungener EinstandKapitel Sechs 57 - FreiheitKapitel Sieben 63 - GingerKapitel Acht 75 - Ginger erzählt weiterKapitel Neun 85 - MerrylegsKapitel Zehn 93 - Eine Unterhaltung im ObstgartenKapitel Elf 109 - Deutliche WorteKapitel Zwölf 119 - Ein stürmischer TagKapitel Dreizehn 129 - Die Handschrift des TeufelsKapitel Vierzehn 137 - James HowardKapitel Fünfzehn 145 - Der alte StallknechtKapitel Sechzehn 153 - FeuerKapitel Siebzehn 165 - John Manly erzähltKapitel Achtzehn 175 - Der Arzt wird geholtKapitel Neunzehn 185 - Nur UnwissenheitKapitel Zwanzig 191 - Joe GreenKapitel Einundzwanzig 199 - AbschiedKapitel Zweiundzwanzig 207 - EarlshallKapitel Dreiundzwanzig 219 - Kampf um die FreiheitKapitel Vierundzwanzig 229 - Lady Anne, oder: Ein Pferd geht durchKapitel Fünfundzwanzig 247 - Reuben SmithKapitel Sechsundzwanzig 257 - Reuben Smiths Ende

After he saw his father set upon and stabbed, nothing was ever the same for the boy who would grow up to become Buffalo Bill Cody. The hatred and bigotry his family suffered in Kansas led him to kill his first man when he was just 10 years old. And in the years that followed, he would face one battle after another - against marauding Cheyenne, against the elements and against the Great Plains themselves. But there was no quit in Will Cody. He was, as his friend Wild Bill Hickok had said, ´´all spit and grit´´. He´d need grit, too, to survive the Pony Express, the Civil War and merciless guerrilla fighters like William Clarke Quantrill and the James Boys. For Will Cody, however, the greatest challenge of his life was still to come. And even he didn´t think he could survive it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chaz Allen.
