Synopsis

This book was inspired by stories about the life of Bass Reeves, a Deputy U.S. Marshal appointed by the court of Judge Isaac C. Parker. Although he was by all accounts an outstanding marshal, Bass Reeves remained somewhat undiscovered. There were several books written about Bass Reeves, which are detailed in the introduction of this book, but Bass never achieved the fame of marshals like Wyatt Earp. Even though this book is mostly a work of fiction, it is hoped this book will help gain Bass Reeves the attention he deserves. On May 26th, 2012, a monument will be dedicated to Bass Reeves near the site of the new U.S. Marshal's Museum in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Ten per cent of the proceeds of this book will be donated to that museum. Five per cent of the proceeds of this book will be donated to the monument fund. On the 10th day of May, 1875, Judge Isaac C. Parker presided over the court in Fort Smith for the first time. His court has been referred to as the greatest criminal court on earth. His court inspired the writing of the history of his court called "Hell on the Border." Many of the events depicted in this book were inspired by that book. But this book is not about Judge Parker's court. This book is about the marshals who risked their lives to clean up Indian Territory; which harbored some of the worst criminals ever depicted, most of whom were white men.
