    Deputy U.S. Marshall Bass Reeves appears as one of 'eight notable Oklahomans,' the 'most feared U.S. marshal in the Indian country.' That Reeves was also an African American who had spent his early life as a slave in Arkansas and Texas makes his accomplishments all the more remarkable. Bucking the odds, Art T. Burton siftrs through fact and legend to discover the truth about one of the most outstanding peace officers in the late nineteenth-century America-and perhaps the greatest lawman of the Wild West era.
