“I loved this wonderful story about Cussy Mary, a pack horse librarian in eastern Kentucky in the 1930s and one of the last of the blue-skinned people of that area. As Cussy faces pressure to marry and difficulties maintaining her arduous book route through twisty and dangerous mountain passes, she earns the respect of the mountain people she serves so faithfully. Beautifully written and heartbreaking at times, this is a story I will never forget.”
— Mary Patterson, The Little Bookshop, Midlothian, VA

Description


Inspired by Kentucky�s blue-skinned people and the Kentucky Pack Horse Library of the 1930s, this is a story of courage, strength, and a woman�s belief that books can carry us anywhere ? even back home.
