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 inthese desperate times. But not everyone is so keen on Cussy's family or the Library Project, and the hardscrabble Kentuckians are quick to blame a Blue for anytrouble in their small town. The Book Woman of TroublesomeCreek is a story of raw courage, fierce strength, and one woman's determination to bring a little bit of hope to thedarkly hollers"--
