“Neither Snow nor Rain: A History of the United States Postal Service,” a new book by business journalist Devin Leonard, will go on sale May 3.

The 288-page book tells the centuries-long story of USPS from its beginnings under Benjamin Franklin, the first Postmaster General, through the era of digital communications.

Leonard highlights how the Postal Service has been involved in the country’s most important issues, as well the organization’s efforts to meet the challenges of mail delivery.

“Neither Snow nor Rain” also includes facts that might surprise today’s readers.

For example, Postmasters were once political appointees who worked out of their homes, while postage stamps weren’t used until 60 years after the postal system was created.
