Fred Staff about this book: When I was gettin my degree from the University of Central Oklahoma, I was priviaged to had Royce Peterson as my instructor in Western History. I was a lover of the Old West before this experiance, but became totally taken with the subject after having three classes with this amazing professor. When I retired from teaching history I decided to make history come alive for all who were interested in little know people and places who had played huge parts in the development of our country. I live in Bolivia and found that there were few people who knew the story of Francisco Roacha, one of the most interesting people I had ever heard of. I wrote Rocha's Treasure of Potosi and it became a best seller.
This spured me to continue writing and while doing research of Cherokee Bill, the worst bad man of his times, I ran across the history of Bass Reeves. I know immediately that I had to get this man in front of an audiance who loved westerns, history, action and adventure.

Bass Reeves Lawman by Fred Staff brings out the early lawlessness of Oklahoma Territory in an exciting story of Bass Reeves with the interraction of the Native American Indians, slaves and the wild west characters. Being familiar with the sites in okla where the action took place (Perry, Pawnee Stillwater Talequah etc.) and the characters (Pistol Pete,Belle Starr,The Hanging Judge etc.) and my interest in Okla History made this a very good read. I highly recommend it and await the next. Good job Fred [by G. Laird]
