Patty Limerick interviewed the 2010 Stegner Award recipient, Ted Turner, for a morning of engaging discussion. Each year, the Center celebrates the life and achievements of an individual who has made a sustained contribution to the cultural identity of the West through literature, art, history, lore, or an understanding of the West. Throughout his career, Ted Turner has used his entrepreneurial acumen, his unprecedented philanthropy, and his dedication to build unique alliances focused on land conservation and preservation. His influence on the Western landscape, both cultural and physical, has been profound, and the Center of the American West was honored to recognize him.
