His honor and courage makes him eligible to be called the greatest lawman of his times.
Bass Reeves’ story is based on true historical facts. It will make any lover of the old west wonder why he is not more famous.
Praise for Bass Reeves:
“I recommend this book to anyone interested in American history, especially the parts of it obscured by past racism. It’s great for everyone who loves a good story in any setting and era. I am looking forward to the next two volumes of this series, and for anything coming from Fred Staff’s pen. He is a storyteller in the tradition of Louis L’Amour. His tales read like ones told around a campfire, always leaving the reader hungry for more.”
“Outstanding book. The author has obviously done a great deal of research on the topic. He also has a good understanding of the eastern Oklahoma Indian Territory. Having lived in Tahlequah, Oklahoma I appreciate his understanding of the terrain and landscape. Looking forward to another book on Reeves later life.”
“This is a very well written book about the early life of Bass Reeves. The author has done an excellent job of mixing history, excitement, and story telling. It’s a book that will hold your attention. I highly recommend this book to anyone with an interest in early history of Oklahoma and Black Peace Officers.”
“Fred Staff has succeeded in writing a novel that is captivating throughout the entire book. His vivid descriptions of both the rugged individuals who settled this untamed land and of the accurate and colorful descriptions of those frontiers that helped shape the personalities of his main characters are outstanding.”
