This book is a must read for everyone who loves books and libraries! I didn’t know anything about the Pack Horse librarians who rode through the poorest areas of the Kentucky mountains to bring reading materials to the people. This was one of the work programs implemented in 1935 by the Works Progress Administration (WPA). It’s also a story about the blue skinned people of Kentucky. It tells us these stories through the eyes of Cussy Marie, also known as Bluet, one of the last of her kind. This is a book not to be missed. And, be sure you read the author’s notes at the end, just fascinating!
