Hard and Beautiful

Like all of Elmer Kelton's books, this story takes a toll on the listener like the hard country in which it plays out. Yet it shows the world with a simple and honest beauty, one where a good life is rewarded in the end.

Excellent Western! Every minute interesting.

Good story line following a young couple. Elmer Kelton must be old school, because decency and moral integrity part of his story. No swearing, respect for marriage made this a pleasant listen. Real men who worked hard and looked out for others and tried to guide young men in a good way. Successful adult life is more about work than play, and Elmer's characters, male and female, knew how to work. Some villains. Characters who were not perfect. Some action. Interesting portrayal of cowboy life, which seemed accurate.

Narrator excellent.

Totally recommend this book.
