Stagecoaches represented the romance of the Old West to Borein. He wrote "To those who have ridden on the box with one of the old-time drivers and watched his easy handling of the reins, his confidence in himself and his steeds, as he rounded jutting points and descended steep grades that made the passengers gasp for breath, the memory is a never-to-be-forgotten picture . . . ."
