SAN ANGELO — The award-winning author with a long history with San Angelo will have his stories featured in a new collection, including one story not seen since 1956, according to a Forge Books release.

Elmer Kelton, who died in 2009, continues to live on with his stories. On Nov. 10, 2020, Forge Books will release “The Cowboy Way,” a collection of 16 Kelton stories. One short story, “The Black Sheep,” had not been in print since its 1956 release in Everywoman’s Magazine.

“The Black Sheep” follows County Agent Will Clayton, who has spent his life teaching children about how to run a ranch. When one boy dies, he is wracked with guilt. This is when Bo Magee, another boy, steps in.

Some of Elmer Kelton's books are showcased Friday, Aug. 3, 2018 at Cactus Book Shop, 4 East Concho Avenue.

“Will is now faced with a choice between facing his demons, and doing good in the place he’s called home, or running from the guilt he feels in his heart,” the release stated.

Other stories include “Fighting for the Brand,” “No Music for Fiddle Feet,” and “Dry Winter,” according to the release.
