Review

“Elmer Kelton writes of early Texas with unerring authority.  His knowledge of the state’s history is complete, too—drawn from the lives of real people.”—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

His novel The Good Old Boys was made into a television film starring Tommy Lee Jones. In addition to his novels, Kelton worked as an agricultural journalist for 42 years, and served in the infantry in World War II. He died in 2009.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Though not Elmer Kelton's best work, Stand Proud is nevertheless an enjoyable read. Stand Proud is the story of Frank Claymore, a cowboy turned hard by years of tough living and hard experience. The novel plods along at a slow pace for almost 2/3 of its length, and at times would be unreadable if it weren't for its main character, Frank Claymore. Kelton does not try to make Claymore a likeable figure, necessarily, but rather attempts to show the reader how a man of Principle like Claymore lives his life by his own rules, and the potential consequences of those actions.

At times slow, but with an interesting main character, Stand Proud is not Kelton's best novel, but still belongs on the shelf of anyone who calls themself a fan.

Great book! I think its his best work. Kelton depicts great characters and Texas history throughout this epic story. It would make a wonderful movie and I wish they would make it one!
