Intrigued by the story that her mother spent two years at an Indian boarding school without seeing her parents, Diane Wilson searches for clues to her family's Dakota past. While growing up in Golden Valley, Wilson identified herself as part Swedish like her Lutheran father. She searches records and explores places in Minnesota, South Dakota, and Nebraska where her ancestors had lived, and finds connections and stories that help heal the hidden past. — Linda B., Southdale Library

Part memoir and part history, Wilson looks for her mother's family, one not talked about by her mother and siblings while Wilson was growing up.

My own family genealogy has a similar?though not quite so painful?past. It took my own mother many years to talk about her early life. I thought Wilson's book might help me write this story. She uses both context and fact to tell it; it's something genealogists sometimes need to do. She did it well, although I found parts repetitive.
