Publisher's Summary

In Stand Proud, one of his most controversial novels, legendary Western writer Elmer Kelton takes on a character who is not as easy to like as he is to admire. Frank Claymore is cantankerous, stubborn, and intolerant - just the qualities that make him a success as an open-range cattle rancher on the West Texas frontier. Stand Proud follows Claymore form the time of the Civil War to the dawn of the 20th century - through marriage, births, deaths, and a creeping change in the society that once hailed him as a hero, and which later has him condemned as a despoiler and tried for murder.

Based in part on legendary rancher Charles Goodnight, Claymore is only one example of the many men who dreamed of cattle, and through their dedication to that dream, came to change the face of Western history.

What the Critics Say

"Recently voted 'the greatest Western writer of all time' by the Western Writers of America, Kelton creates characters more complex than L'Amour's." (Kirkus Reviews)

"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.... The fate of Texas is at hand, and Kelton will have readers eager to find out what happens." (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)
