There's some fine reading there. Thanks for the link, David. As one of the comment said, Hollywood could make a fine movie about Bass!
This was super! I've been working on genealogy in Arkansas and reading a lot of Indian history. This info was really fascinating. I'm going to track down the Bass Reeves movie. This is a hero that should NOT be forgotten! Thanks for bringing him to my attention.
As someone interested in the history of race relations, I found this solid reading. Thanks for the link. If you haven't seen it, you might be interested in the black western Sidney Poitier and Harry Belafonte made: BUCK AND THE PREACHER. Poitier plays the kind of cowboy hero that brings Bass Reeves and Gideon Miles to mind.
David, Bass needs a top studio to bring in the story of his life.Jess, The link I have to the Art Burton book is a good place to start.Ron, Terrific movie and Poitier is in top form there. But, then again, when isn't he?
I was reading a lot about him when I was working on Killing Trail. Definitely a fascinating character.
I learned quite a few new facts in this article.
