I had no knowledge of the rare Blue people of Kentucky nor the historical Pack Horse Library Project. This is the story of 19 year old âBluetâ Cussy Mary and her trials and tribulations of being one of the compassionate Pack Hours librarians, trekking up and down treacherous mountains with her devoted mule. Cussy was the last of the Blue People, rejected and scorned because of her color. She was passionate about bringing books to her impoverished clients and help teach children to read.

This fascinating story had me telling every one who would listen to read this memorable book about the gentle Blue People of Appalachia. I couldn't stop thinking about it.
