Taima’s Woman by Trish Dudek explores wild country, wild animals and wild love

The Wild West, as Hollywood portrays it, is not accurate.

Trisha Dudek’s new novel, Taima’s Woman, seeks to reveal the era as it really was.

Dudek’s novel shares one young woman’s journey through life in the early-nineteenth century. Margaret, with the strength to create her own life independent of society, works with a young Blackfoot warrior, Night Hawk, to domesticate a wild stallion, Taima.

The novel’s author loves horses, books and Native American history (she recently learned she has Cherokee in her lineage). This combination led Dudek to write after she retired from 30 years of teaching.

“The story grabs you,” Dudek said. “You’ll forget dinner, and you’ll forget the need to sleep. You’ll read until you finish the book.”

Taima’s Woman reveals the depth of culture and spirituality, along with the realities of the early 1800’s.

“I want my readers to absorb the magnificent spiritual heritage of our Native American cultures,” Dudek said.
