Frank Claymore is not easy to like. You can admire him, maybe, but not many can truly say they like the man. He's cantankerous, stubborn, and doesn't tolerate much of anything that displeases him. These very qualities are what make him a successful open-range cattleman on the West Texas frontier.

In Elmer Kelton's own words: "Pain resulting from other men's follies causes Stand Proud's Frank Claymore to develop an iron will that heeds no man's judgment except his own, nor any woman's. Some of his decisions are wrong, and the price of pride proves high."

Baker & Taylor
On trial for murder, Frank Claymore, an old Texas rancher, recalls his experiences as a young man in West Texas following the Civil War and the events that led up to his trial. (Western)
