Jim DeFelice - West Like Lightning

Tuesday, July 17, 7pm
St. Louis County Library HQ

Jim DeFelice, West Like LightningOn the eve of the Civil War, three American businessmen launched an audacious plan to transform communications across the hostile territory between the nation’s two coasts. In the process, they created one of the most enduring icons of the American West: the Pony Express. Daring young men galloped over a vast and unforgiving landscape, etching an irresistible tale that passed into myth almost instantly. Equally an improbable success and a business disaster, the Pony Express came and went in just 18 months, but not before uniting and captivating a nation on the brink of being torn apart. Jim DeFelice previously co-authored Chris Kyle’s #1 bestselling memoir, “American Sniper.”
