Set in 1861 in the Nevada Great Basin, XP follows the orphan James Donovan as he rides for the legendary Pony Express. Galloping for twenty-four hours straight, he carries whisper-thin mail, crossing a desolate land - dangerous, yet terrifyingly beautiful. Two clashing worlds battle for his identity -the Paiute Indians who helped raise him, and the Mormons who tried to capture his soul. - from the dust jacket.
