About Pony Express rider
Available from McGraw Hill Home Interactive, “Pony Express Rider” puts you in the rider’s seat. You have taken on the dangerous task of delivering the mail on time! It is 1861, and the Civil War has just begun. You must outwit Confederate spies who want California to secede from the Union. And every decision is up to you!
“Two things make this one of the best new programs of the year. First, the multi-media mix is darn near perfect, seamless. Next, and ultimately more important, the program uses an exciting story line – in this case a Confederate plot that must be foiled – in order to involve kids with the issues of history.
