THE YOUNG RIDERS
A group of young Pony Express riders are based at the waystation in Sweetwater, Kansas. Running the station is ex-Texas Ranger and all-around eccentric Teaspoon Hunter. The riders included future American folk heroes Buffalo Bill Cody (Stephen Baldwin) and Wild Bill Hickok (Josh Brolin), as well a mute named Ike, Buck, a half-White/half-Kiowa scout, and the Kid, a quiet Southerner. Their final member was Lou, a young woman who lived and worked with the riders disguised as a boy.
