A librarian's brave journey to deliver books to children...

During the Great Depression, food, education, and opportunities were scarce. Kentucky had fallen behind in electricity and highways, and the folks who lived in the craggy, mountainous region were struggling to survive. But courageous librarians were up to the challenge and delivered the books by horseback!

Edith, a young Pack Horse Librarian, and her faithful horse Dan, adventure through rough terrain and a pending storm in order to deliver books to kids who desperately need them in this richly illustrated tale. Librarians like Edith helped an entire generation learn to read and gain lifesaving knowledge in a critical time in history.
