Summary
"This book tells the history of Texas's antebellum frontier and the Butterfield Overland Mail, which ran from St. Louis to San Francisco through Texas from 1858 to 1861. The Overland Mail Road intersected and influenced much of Texas's frontier history and was the nineteenth-century equivalent of the modern interstate highway system, stimulating passenger traffic, commercial freighting, and business"--Provided by publisher
