Fred Staff

Author Fred Staffabout this book: The first forty years of the life of the most feared US Marshal to serve the most violent area in America. Born a slave and escaping at the Battle of Pea Ridge he lived with the Indians until settleing in Arkansas. Because of his great tracking skills and ability to speak five Indian languages, he was requited by THE HANGING JUDGE PARKER to help tame the area. This is the first book of a trilogy that covers the life of the longest serving US Marshal in history.

Because he was Black history had nearly forgotten him, until this trilogy was written. He now has a 280,000 dollar statue on the grounds of Judge Parkers Court House in Fort Smith, Arkansas and the New US Marshal's Museum located just across the stree from the statue will feature him and his many exploits. The reviews on this book continually repeat "Could not put it down." and a must read for history and western lovers.

 Exciting portrait of a real western hero..

Young Bass Reeves is a great read about a young man intent on making his mark in the world. Fred Staff, the author, tells the life and times of Bass Reeves in an engaging manner that kept my interest. I could easily see this book adapted for the big screen. [by Elise B.]
