COLUMBIA CITY — A Tri-Lakes woman’s foray into Native American research has led to her joining up with a professional author for a book series.

Liz Martinez began her research approximately 20 years ago. She studied remedies used by Native cultures that would cure a variety of maladies.

Through this research, she became connected online with Karen D. Musson. Musson lives in southern Missouri and began writing a book series 10 years ago about 19th-century Native American life, particularly the Lakota Tribe.

The series has four books in it, and the titles are based on a character named Prairie Dawn.

The fourth title, Sioux Pride, features a character based on Martinez known as Medicine Moon.

The friendship and collaboration between Martinez and Musson has reached a point where Martinez will now be a co-author for the subsequent books in the series.

“We are so close in our thinking,” Martinez said.

Musson agreed the two have formed a special bond.
