Never mind that Addie Clawson didn't own a car. She didn't even know how to drive one when the U.S. Postal Service hired her to deliver the mail through the mountains in Boone, North Carolina. That was on Friday. By Monday, she had a plan. Never mind that in 1936 only men delivered the mail, and women didn't do that sort of work. Never mind that the rough roads, blizzards, and floods made the life of rural mail carriers difficult. Against all odds, Miss Addie was determined to deliver the mail. For 30 years, that's just what she did. Here is the story of one pioneering woman's courage, dedication, and kindness.
