North Dakota's Homesteading History Comes To Life in Robinson Native's New Book.
"If This Land Could Talk, Homesteading on the Northern Plains", by Judy (Price) Cook, is a well-written, well-researched account of three generations of homesteaders in Kidder County, North Dakota. Although the book primarily traces the geneological path of her own ancestors, Judy ingeniously includes both noteworthy people and fascinating historical events of the period along the way, creating a book that becomes a literal gem for all proud North Dakota natives. Judy's imaginative use of dialogue makes the true stories spring to life. Thrown into this virtual treasure chest of North Dakota history are stories of everyday life, humor, scandal, even murder, which most former and current residents will enjoy reading. Judy has managed to somehow procure, during her meticulous research, over sixty great black and white photos dating roughly from 1891 to 1990. Not only does Judy harbor a deep love and respect for her ancestors, but she also exhibits that same love and respect for the North Dakota prairie, her childhood home, in this fascinating, easy-to-read book.Was this review helpful?
