Cover: Bad News for Outlaws: The Remarkable Life of Bass Reeves, Deputy U.S. Marshal

“With lively language and anecdotes, Nelson (Juneteenth) chronicles the life of African-American lawman Bass Reeves in a biography that elevates him to folk hero. . . It’s an arresting portrait of a man who rose from escaped slave in Indian Territory (now Oklahoma) to become a federal marshal who made thousands of arrests, including his own son, but killed only 14 men.” —Publishers Weekly
