About the Book
If This Land Could Talk is a compilation of meticulous research, personal experiences and stories passed down through her family, who homesteaded and farmed in North Dakota’s Kidder County. The story begins around 1900 with introductions of Cook’s grandparents arriving in North Dakota, followed by descriptions of their daily lives, challenges, joys and intrigues.

With anecdotes, dialogue and the context of historical events, she brings her four grandparents and parents to life in a book that could be “a model for writing family histories,” wrote a reviewer with ForeWord Clarion Review in Michigan. Cook also recounts how growing up on the same land during the 1950s shaped her life.
