In That Book Woman, a family living in the Appalachian Mountains in the 1930's gets books to read during the regular visits of the "Book Woman"—a librarian who rides a pack horse through the mountains every two weeks, lending books to the isolated residents. It is based on the inspiring true work of the Pack Horse Librarians and the Pack Horse Library Project which was founded as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration to bring books to remote regions where there were few schools and libraries.
