Notes

Description
"Cussy Mary Carter is the last of her kind, her skin the color of a blue damselfly in these dusty hills. But that doesn't mean she's got nothing to offer. As a member of the Pack Horse Library Project, Cussy delivers books to the hill folk of Troublesome, hoping to spread learning in these desperate times. But not everyone is so keen on Cussy's family or the government's new book program, and the hardscrabble Kentuckians are quick to blame a Blue for any trouble in their small town. If Cussy wants to bring the joy of books to them, she's going to have to confront dangers and prejudice as old as the Appalachias, and suspicion as deep as the holler. The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek is a story of raw courage, fierce strength, and one woman's belief that books can carry us anywhere--even back home" --,Provided by publisher.
