About this title


"Wow!...Great job of bringing this man [Tom] and his times to life...Definitely a winner!" -Megan Smolenyak, chief genealogist for, author of Who Do You Think You Are?, and consultant to the TV series of the same name. Millions of settlers flocked westward for homesteads, taking advantage of the free land opened to settlement by the expanding railroads. Few remained there, but author Judy Cook's family never lost faith in the land. Cook's Dakota roots inspire this compelling story of her grandparents' homesteading experiences in North Dakota. If This Land Could Talk provides a riveting look at three generations of life on the northern plains, where Cook spent her formative years. Her candid portrayal brings to life her four grandparents, who carved a living from the inhospitable prairie, and her parents, who continued to farm on the same land. She offers a poignant yet entertaining glimpse into her ancestors' daily lives. The author recounts growing up on the same land in the 1950s, shaped by a way of life long since vanished. Based on meticulous research, personal experiences, and stories passed from family to family, If This Land Could Talk resonates with a powerful sense of place, an enduring love of the land, and reverence for the family.

About the Author:

Judy R. Cook discovered amazing stories of struggle, survival, and scandal when she chronicled her grandparents' lives as homesteaders on the Northern Plains. She lives with her husband, Robert, near Los Angeles. A North Dakota native, Cook enjoys singing, travel, genealogy, and gardening.
