Cal is not the reading type, but that book woman keeps visiting. This is the moving story of the Pack Horse Librarians, whose bravery and commitment helped rural children find something wonderful in books. Includes bonus interviews with Heather Henson and illustrator David Small.

Reviews:
"With soft mountain music tinkling in the background, a young narrator tells the story as cameras pan David Small's ink, watercolor, and pastel drawings. Children receive a slice of history and a gentle reminder of the value of books and reading." - Booklist
"Background music with an Appalachian air accompanies this reading in a fine regional accent. The text is lyrical, and occasional homespun language brings it to life. This exceptional titles can easily be paired with Barbara Cooney's Miss Rumphius." - Starred Review, School Library Journal
"This iconographic video of a Pack Horse Librarian and a reluctant reader is a real gem." - ALA Notable Video Committee
"Walter Harrison superbly narrates Henson's wonderful story." - AudioFile
" Highly recomended." - ***1/2, Video Librarian
