Frontier Justice: Bass Reeves, Deputy U.S. Marshal

by charlesray

Bass Reeves, a former slave, was one of the first African-Americans hired as a deputy U.S. marshal west of the Mississippi. Even though he could neither read nor write English, he spoke six Native American languages and was an expert shot and tracker. During a 32 year career he brought in over 3,000 fugitives. This is a fictionalized (but historically accurate) account of his first two years as the ‘Indomitable Marshal.’
