Product Overview

1928. Through the great undertones of history resounds the music of galloping hoofs! Sometimes the thunderous chorus of hurrying cavalry to turn the tide of battle-again a staccato solo from the flying feet of a single horse and a lone rider on whom depends the fate of a nation. Of those who rode alone this book tells thrilling stories. They were the riders who sped, with whip and spur, to carry a message, conquer a wilderness, brave a danger, pursue an enemy, or escape a peril. They had the brain, nerve, sinew to do the duty of the hour without question and without hesitation. These are inspiring tales of courageous hearts, of men and horses who knew no fear, from Paul Revere galloping through the night to Concord town, to Curly, the Crow Scout, racing through the Indian lines to carry the news of Custer's defeat. Every story is a thrill with adventure, and a forceful lesson in heroism.
