    1 thought on “The Man Who Rode Midnight”

    1. Back in 1973 Elmer Kelton published his most critically acclaimed novel, one that won both a Spur Award and a Western Heritage Award. It was The Time It Never Rained, which one admiring critic conceded wasn’t “the Great American novel,” but may have very well been “the Great Texas Novel.”It was the story of Charlie Flagg, a tough-minded Texas rancher who in the 1950s was hanging on with all he had as he tried to survive the worse drought to hit that part of Texas since the dust bowl da [...]

    2. 12/12/'17 Perhaps top five member of Kelton's novels? Sequel, sorta, to Time It Never Rained.The Time It Never RainedQuotes from Introduction"Drive through ranching and farming country or the rural small towns which traditionally have depended upon agriculture and you'll see evidence of the theme that dominates The Man Who Rode Midnight. Abandoned houses on the land, towns with boarded-up storefronts, failed banks, vacant homes with forlorn 'For Sale' signs sagging in dried-up front yards tell [...]

    3. Unlike Kelton's historical novels, this story takes place in the 1980s Texas as oil drillers and developers place old time hard scrabble cattle ranchers on the endangered list. Although it is primarily a coming of age novel, at age 76 I identified more with the grandfather and his contemporaries as they cope with declining health, the death of old friends, and social changes.

    4. Elmer Kelton is a national treasure. This book, while not one of his best, is still better than most. Failed college student goes to his grandfather's ranch to help his dad get the old man off the ranch. However, he soon finds he likes the old man and the ranch. How they survive the townspeoples plans to steal the old man's ranch makes for interesting reading. Recommended.

    5. This was a really good book and I think that covers a lot of the feelings of the "gentrification" that rich land developers instill when they come in and try to make things that serve no purpose other than to make the rich richer.

    6. One of my absolute favorite Elmer Kealton books, The Man Who Rode Midnight is the story of Wes Hendricks and his failing ranch in the early 80's. While it is appears similar to The Time It never rained, it is a completeley diffrent story. It shows how even the two most diffrent people, Wes and his grandson Jim Ed, can find common ground about the land that one already loves and one comes to love. In the ever uncertain times, Wes holds true to his values and teaches his grandson why he feels the [...]

    7. My husband is a real fan of the Western novel and thought this was one I would appreciate, and I did. Set in the 1980's this is a story of a dying way of life and the struggle to preserve it. This book won the Western Heritage Award and deserves it. The story is skillfully woven about a modern college student unwillingly sent to work on his grandfather's ranch. His struggles with the hard work, his grandfather's struggles to save his ranch, and the struggles of neighboring ranchers and formen to [...]

    8. I have read several of Elmer Kelton's books. They are all terrific but rather than cowboys and indians, this is a story about a family. The last quarter of the book is a real tear jerker; the elderly grandfather is being forced to give up his ranch, partly because of debt and partly because he is just too old to handle it anymore. Fortunately, the last page or so has it coming out right. What an amazing story teller, Elmer Kelton is.

    9. Probably my second favorite Elmer Kelton book after The Pumpkin Rollers. It made me understand my dad and grandpa a little more. I realized that some farmers don't care so much about profits. Even when they lose money, they'll keep on farming because it's a part of who they are and they wouldn't be themselves without it.

    10. This, like The Time It Never Rained, is one of the 10 best books I have ever read. It is by the same author. This is a reread. I wanted this book so badly I bought a retired library book so I could read it.

    11. Wes Hendrix is an old rodeo cowboy who has a failing ranch. His grandson Jim Ed comes to visit and to try to get him to dispose of the ranch. Wes has no quit in him and Jim Ed will learn some important life lessons from his grandfather.

    12. Real nice Western about an old Cowboy confronted with mordern times. He is forced to give up his Ranch due to a dam on the near by river. A relationship is built to his big city grandson.

    13. RDC-M V 5 1987, 9/88. Aging cowboy wants to be left alone on his ranch, his grandson wants him to sell. Romance. Okay.

    14. I have read the earlier reviews and think they are great. I liked the book and have read most of kelton's books. I like the synopsis of the book provided by .

    15. This is a great modern western (circa 1980's), a coming of age for the grandson, and end of an era to the grandfather. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I loved it.
