Along a Storied Trail

Along a Storied TrailAlong a Storied Trail by Ann H. Gabhart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Another Ann Gabhart classic tale of adventure and love in the mountains of eastern Kentucky. Ride along with Tansy Calhoun as she delivers books to those who live up in the hills as part of the Packhorse Librarians during the Great Depression.

The story is peppered with colorful characters like Perdy Sweet and “Preacher” Rowlett and even a “slicker” from the city. There’s also a host of animal characters from an unpredictable cat to a troublesome hound pup to the leased horse Tansy rides on her routes.

The people of the Great Depression had little to survive on, and those in the hills had less than most, but what they did have was each other. Families came together – sometimes forming in ways other than bloodlines – to lend a helping hand where needed. Faith played a critical part, but also common sense and the willingness to work long and hard to make things happen. A truly inspiring story.

  1. Thanks for the review, Pegg. So glad you enjoyed riding those book routes with my book woman. I love your bio, especially that husband of “mumble” years. That’s what I’m going to start saying too. Very impressed with all your awards and of course all that beautiful yarn you make into shawls..
