Bass Reeves

As an old west history lover I have now written three books on the life of Bass Reeves.  He was the first Black US Marshal west of the Mississippi River  His exploits were so great that you would think it is a work of total fiction, but in truth he was one of the longest serving US Marshals in history and played a very important part of helping Oklahoma become a state.  His work with the famous HANGING JUDGE PARKER brought about the recognition that Oklahoma should become a state.  I invite your comments on this man and his accomplishments,  There are at least four cities who have BASS REEVES DAYS and hundreds of children study his life in the classrooms,  If you love the west you will be knocked out by the accomplishments of this man and be astounded that he has not received his well earned place in history until recently.
