Ben Holladay: The Stagecoach King : A Chapter in the Development of Transcontinental Transportation
, by J. V. Frederick (.us price)
From a review entitled 'Dangerous Mail Delivery":
"...So often we see in westerns the stagecoach roaring into town and well-dressed easterners get out--not even dusty. This book shows the real and extremely difficult days of the stagecoach mail delivery and does it in a very factual, well-documented way. The end of the book should have been put at the first so we could know Ben Holladay before we learned all about the difficulties of getting the people and the mail to the western cities. ..."
Another says: "Holladay was born in Kentucky in 1819 and went to Weston, MO, as a boy (one rumor says he ran away from home). He worked different jobs there for a number of years, married and had seven children, and then got a job freighting supplies for Kearny's Army of the West during the Mexican War. .."

Motorized Mail by James H. Bruns
(.us price) (.uk price)
Reviewed: As a collector of Postal items, I find that this book is a great reference for motor vehicles that have moved the mail. The author, being the curator for the Smithsonian Postal Museum has access to many photos that few people have seen. Some of these are just wonderful. The book is heavily illustrated, and each illustration is identified as to what it is. The history of the Postal Service included with the history of its vehicles is very good, although in order to obtain the complete story, you will need to obtain the rest of Mr. Bruns' books.
