Issue Notes

The indicia lists only T.T. Scott as President and S.M. Iger as Art Director, and specifically not Byrne as editor, though, he was known to have been working in that role in this general time frame. In other books of the same era, the indicia clearly state Byrne's role.

Synopsis
The year is 1860, and this is the first Pony Express run for young Chip Blake. Chip has been taught that the only good Indian is a dead Indian. Still, his humanitarian ways make his stop to aid an Indian, treed by a bear. Months later, an Indian raid wounds another Pony Express rider, and it is up to Chip to finish the job. Chip, however, gets trapped and wounded by the same war party. He loses consciousness, and so does not see that the Indian he saved from the bear swoops in to his rescue, and delivers him safe to his destination.
