Author explores the ‘post’—delivering letters, newspapers and advertising—from the founding of our country to the current time.

I collected stamps as a girl so this title caught my attention. There’s some on ‘commeoratives,’ but much more on how mail delivery influenced our transportation systems. Amazing. Who knew.

A better book would have longer and more detailed portraits of the characters who worked for the PO. There is too much background general history that just repeats what most of us learned in high school.
