"Valerian and Laureline are exploring Syrte, capital planet of a system of 1,000 worlds. Their mission is to discover whether the Syrtians could present a danger to Earth.

In 1860, getting from Missouri to California on the West Coast took a long, long time not to mention a certain degree of courage.

In response, entrepreneur W.H. Russell founds the Pony Express company: fearless men riding day and night, changing horses at way stations. But not everyone likes that idea
La légende de l'Ouest by Morris( Book )

If the Old West is so well known, it's in no small part because some of its own legends made sure they were recognised in their own time - like Buffalo Bill Cody and his Wild West shows.

A simple jest that will lead to many high jinks
