|User Summary:||Your assignment is to travel to the American West in the 1860s to discover why the Pony Express only lasted eighteen months.|
This is a good book, though it's just about average quality for this series. There's a bit of challenge towards the end, but it's not too hard to get through the book fairly quickly.
Another great entry in the Time Machine series. Wild West Rider suffers from somewhat childish writing at times, a flaw inherent in gamebooks of this nature which target audiences of obviously younger readers. However, this gem of a book makes up for it in other aspects. A fascinating topic is found in the book and even if you’re not a big fan of the Western genre, finding the reason behind the resulting failure of the Pony Express is still something that should be able to grab the attention of most readers. Wild West Rider sheds a little light on the true importance of the Pony Express in the annals of history and left me feeling satisfied by the time I'd reached the end. Things can get a little tricky toward the end of the book and it's possible to get caught in a loop, but all in all it's fairly easy to reach the end.
