The Almanac opens with two survey articles giving an overview of the movies, videos and books on a Western theme that have come out over the last twelve months, and then continues with articles and dossiers devoted to the Apaches, the Kit Carson of comic strips, spaghetti westerns and Renzo Calegari, the illustrator of the previously unpublished Tex episode contained in this almanac. “La ballata di Zeke Colter” opens in the snowy environment of the Rocky Mountains: while Carson is waiting in Rock Spring, Tex meets an old friend: a beaver hunter he met twenty years ago. It’s Zeke Hunter, who opted to stay in the wilds together with his aging Indian wife Anitra Zoppa. The trapper is threatened by a band of villains who are convinced he’s discovered a rich vein of gold, and the Ranger has absolutely no hesitation in siding with the old trapper… What also makes this Almanac really special is the free gift enclosed with it: a 64-page book with biographical notes on all the Bonellian authors!
