Meet the Author

Trudy Chambers Price was born in the Aroostook County town of Island Falls, Maine, and grew up in Caribou. Every fall from the ages of 10 to 18, she picked potatoes to earn money to buy her own clothes. On her record day she picked 100 barrels of potatoes (because her boyfriend pulled the tops).

Trudy graduated from Caribou High School in 1958 and from the University of Maine at Orono in 1962. For 23 years she was a partner on Craneland Farm in Knox, Maine, where she and her husband Ron, bred and milked Registered Holsteins. She lives in Brunswick and works part-time for Islandport Press and Bath Book Shop. She is also the author of The Cows are Out! Two Decades on a Maine Dairy Farm.

Read an Excerpt

"People from Connecticut knew that Sam and Sis had family from Northern Maine and they think it's wild country. A bunch of hicks. We had a bathtub on the front lawn that the cows used to drink from. The kids used to swim in it in the summertime. Sam took a picture of Bob out there without a shirt and told everybody in Connecticut that's where his relatives took their baths." Mary Campbell
"People ask all the time why we had thirteen children. Bob wanted seventeen. I wanted two. People would ask, 'how do you do it'? They just came one at a time and you loved the next one as you did the others. I wouldn't have done it any differently." Mary Campbell
"Over that way, you're looking at 50 or 60 miles. It's all hilly. Nice. It has so much color to it. You've got your roads, your grain, your potatoes, your peas. Broccoli has taken the place of peas and that's a beautiful color. It's actually a beautiful picture, all painted for you. So, I like it. I've been overseas, to Texas, Florida and Idaho. It's all so much better right here." Bob Campbell
