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

About the Author

Elmer Kelton (1926-2009) was the award-winning author of more than forty novels, including The Time It Never Rained, Other Men’s Horses, Texas Standoff and Hard Trail to Follow. He grew up on a ranch near Crane, Texas, and earned a journalism degree from the University of Texas. His first novel, Hot Iron, was published in 1956. Among his awards have been seven Spurs from Western Writers of America and four Western Heritage awards from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame. 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.

Kelton writes "historical" westerns, they seem real - not as impossible as some western stories I've read. Very down to earth, absorbing. I have read every L'mour book he wrote and Kelton compares well with his best. Enjoy!

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!

Format: Kindle Edition
This novel doesn't have your typical protagonist. The hero, if he may be called that, is rigid, unbending, autocratic and a law unto himself. These qualities helped him survive in a time and environment where many others failed. But times changes, and what were once counted as qualities no longer fit into a changing world. The protagonist becomes an anachronism, resented by the very people who once sought his protection. The novel covers a span in excess of fifty years; a time of great changes in society and societal values. The hero had not changed, the world had. A thought provoking novel of right and wrong and a man caught in the middle and destroyed by his own inability to change and adapt.

There are many contenders for Kelton's best book (The Time it Never Rained, The Day the Cowboys Quit, etc.), but Stand Proud should be counted among them.
