Some of you may have read The Legend of Jimmy Spoon (Great Episode series) by Kristiana Gregory at some point. It is about the adventures of a young white boy living among the Shoshoni Indians during the early frontier days. Jimmy Spoon and the Pony Express is a sequel to that book. Seventeen-year-old Jimmy is back with his family in Salt Lake City, but he is growing restless. He goes seeking adventure, and a way to contact his Indian family, as a rider for the Pony Express.
