“Elmer Kelton is truly a Texas legend.”
--Rick Perry, Governor of Texas
“Kelton does once again what he does better than anyone: tell a turbulent story calmly....[his] reputation continues to expand. He has earned his prestige word by honest word.”
--Stephen Harrigan, author of The Gates of the Alamo
“Elmer Kelton is a genuine, unaffected, kind, and gentle man, the sort who, in person, makes you want to hunker down and listen to his stories, his voice, and his wisdom.”
--Judy Alter, author of Elmer Kelton and West Texas: A Literary Relationship
"If you're looking for a trail guide through old Texas, Elmer's your man. So, pack your possibles, tighten your cinch, and get ready for a helluva ride."
--Lucia St. Clair Robson, author of Shadow Patriots
"Elmer Kelton does not write Westerns. He writes fine novels set in the West. Here a reader meets flesh-and-blood people of an earlier time, in a story that will grab you and hold you from the first to the last page."
--Dee Brown, author of the New York Times bestseller Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee
"You can never go wrong if you want to read a good story with realistic characters and you pick up a title by Elmer Kelton. . . . Kelton's characters jump off the page, they are so real."
