TransMontana is the story of Montana hunter and county attorney Robert Zenker's transition from a male, popularly elected public official to modern, professional woman. Robert Zenker was a married man and father of two, boxed in the psychologically complicated, emotionally taut web of secrecy, shame, fear, doubt and ambiguity of self of a transsexual deeply in denial. Roberta inhabited that body and all the accoutrement of the life of a man in Montana for nearly fifty years before her transition from man to woman in 2007. The remarkable story of her emerging from her box is a complex, courageous and sometimes dangerous journey involving not only physical transition, but also alcohol recovery and the result of both, a spiritual transformation. Bobbie is now a beloved daughter, and a supportive friend to many women. Village Books is pleased to carry copies of TransMontana. Please call 360-671-2626 to obtain copies.
