Elmer Stephen Kelton (April 29, 1926 – August 22, 2009) was an American journalist and writer, known particularly for his Western novels. His pseudonyms are: Tom Early, Alex Hawk, Lee McElroy. Kelton was born at a place called Horse Camp on the Five. Kelton was born at a place called Horse Camp on the Five Wells Ranch, owned by the Scharbauer Cattle Company, in Andrews County - just east of the city of Andrews, Texas. His parents were Robert William "Buck" Kelton- (30 June 1901 – 15 June 1980) and Neta Beatrice "Bea" (née Parker).
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 - Elmer Kelton. From the time I first began writing fiction more than fifty years ago, I was determined someday to write a novel about the development of the cattle industry in West Texas, the heyday of the open-range cattleman and cowboy. The concept ebbed and flowed during the years, changing shape and direction as my own concept of history broadened and changed. Some years ago, while Stand Proud was in its planning stages, an elderly ranchman named Ira Bird told me a story about his father, a teenager late in the Civil War, too young to join the regulars but old enough to scout the Indian frontier with a Ranger company.
