A "counter-recommendation" Have you read "The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek? It's a grim but beautifully written story of the first pack libraries of Kentucky: a 1930's WPA force of women who--by mule, horse, or foot--delivered to the back hills a meager stock of books, newspapers, magazines, and self-assembled scrapbooks of household clippings. Poverty and prejudice haunt the pages, but it's a lovely picture of the compassion and loyalty those isolated families felt for each other.
