Elmer Kelton dies
a famous author
a talented writer
a humble man
Elmer Kelton was one of the nicest persons I’ve ever met. He had no ego – a man who won so many honors yet was friendly and considerate to everyone. Such talent. Such goodness. God bless Elmer Kelton and God bless his family.
“One thing is certain: as long as there are writers as skillful as Elmer Kelton, Western literature will never die.”—True West Magazine
