Award-winning artist Bernie Fuchs creates an exciting adventure about an orphan boy and his beloved horse as they ride the Pony Express.
Known for their courage, self confidence, speed, and willingness to face adversity, the riders of the Pony Express quickly became legendary heroes in their time. Now dramatic oil paintings by award winner Bernie Fuchs capture the spirit, strength, and stamina of one young rider, Johnny Free, as he and his beloved pony, JennySoo, set off at top speed.
