    Bass Reeves was a legend in his own time. He was the epitome of dedication to duty, Judge Parker's most trusted deputy and one of the greatest lawmen of the western frontier. On January 12, , Bass Reeves died at the age of 71, in Muskogee, Oklahoma. Do you think The Legend of Bass Reeves needs a follow-up book? Why or why not? If a follow-up took a more in-depth look at the available information, it would probably be okay. More in this same style wouldn't do it for me. Any additional comments? As a book this barely holds together.

    Oct 02,  · Reeves was a giant of a man standing 6’2” with broad shoulders. Not many outlaws trifled with him. He gunned down fourteen outlaws who did. Federal law mandated that U.S. Marshals be accompanied by at least one posse man. While Bass Reeves patrolled the Indian Territory, he often had only one Indian to assist him. Great book! Bass Reeves was a memorable historical figure! This book really fills in the blanks of missing history. I loved reading about Bass Reeves and the huge impact he had on the American West. It makes sense how he would be the historical person the Lone Ranger was based on/5(4).
