CJ met Tom Quinn there, when Tom did this legendary cover:
Both went on to other things, Quinn to become a wildlife painter, perhaps our best; CJ, however improbably, ended up in Nevada runing the outspoken rancher's voice, Range magazine, where the English girl has been nominated for Cowgirl Hall of Fame by Jameson Parker, Joan Chevalier, and John L Moore, two of whom make frequent appearances here.
I have one original Quinn, a watercolor sketch of a roadkill Bee eater that I snatched out of the fire kindling in his studio (really), any amount of prints, and have been privileged to write the text to a collection of his work, The Art of Thomas Quinn.
CJ, as Tom says, is not always controversial. She has just released what I believe is her second, broadest in scope, most ambitious and best collection of western art and poetry (in this and other images forgive some rather odd croppings; I photo'd it on my coffee table!)
Paul Zarzyski (he is a Democrat!); Ted Kooser; Linda Hasselstrom, and many many more. In artists Tom is well represented, but also the old master Maynard Dixon, Charlie Russell, and any number of writers and artists who may be new to you. Here is a broad if non- random selection:. A always, right or double click and you can blow it up big enough to read easily.
Here is CJ with Montana novelist and friend of Q John L Moore.
