Born into slavery, Bass Reeves became the most successful US Marshal of the Wild West.
Many 'heroic lawmen' of the Wild West, familiar to us through television and film, were actually violent scoundrels and outlaws themselves. But of all the sheriffs of the frontier, one man stands out as a true hero: Bass Reeves.

He was the most successful Federal Marshal in the US in his day. True to the mythical code of the West, he never drew his gun first. He brought hundreds of fugitives to justice, was shot at countless times, and never hit.

Bass Reeves was a black man, born into slavery. And though the laws of his country enslaved him and his mother, when he became a free man he served the law, with such courage and honor that he became a legend.

The absolute worst audiobook I’ve ever read, it’s all fiction you could put any name of that genre to that story, the writer took all his info from his personal life accounts. He said this was done because there is little information on Bass..... then don’t write a book on him! Usually good narration from this guy but the character voices he used didn’t vibe with me, I do NOT recommend this audiobook
