Dallas, TX, April 26, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Rising actor Armie Hammer — who stars as the man in the black mask opposite superstar Johnny Depp as the heroic Tonto — graces the cover of this collector’s edition issue and figures prominently in the preview story by C&I contributor Wendy Wilkinson.
“It was so amazing to be able to do a big western like The Lone Ranger,” Hammer says. “They don’t make many movies like this anymore. Westerns are exclusively American. This country was the last frontier, and to be able to spend six months on the Western frontier, finding a sense of self-worth and exploration, was an experience I’ll probably never have again.”
Elsewhere in the Best of the West issue, C&I writers and editors wax enthusiastic for 20 Western essentials — everything from the cast-iron skillet and the saddlebag to the Pendleton blanket and the Winchester rifle — and pay tribute to such notables as up-and-coming Navajo artist Patrick Dean Hubbell, The Band Perry, and the late, great Harry Carey Jr. Chuck Thompson details the quest for king salmon that unites bush pilots, fishermen, tourists, miners, Eskimos, and lawyers in the wilds of western Alaska. And Shooter Jennings, the proud son of a country music outlaw, talks about making his own kind of music with C&I website editor Hunter Hauk.
