Yesterday, I put up a post about my search for a definitive bio on Bass Reeves. Today, Art Burton, the foremost authority on Reeves, stopped by to shed some light on this fascinating man. I've looked up Mr. Burton's book Black Gun, Silver Star: The Life and Legend of Frontier Marshal Bass Reeves and found it's available through Barnes and Noble, and I'm planning to order a copy tonight.
In his comment, Mr. Burton extended this invitation: "If anyone would like to work on a Reeves project, print or film, they can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org." You can read his full response in the comments section of my previous post on Bass Reeves.
