This podcast focuses on legendary lawman Bass Reeves.
The life of Bass Reeves is so full of tales of immense bravery and heroic deeds that it seems to be more folklore than fact, but Reeves was the first Black Deputy U.S. Marshall and he had an unprecedented career tracking down criminals in the old Indian territory.
Born into slavery, Bass would become his own man and one of the most feared trackers in the west. He was tenacious, relentless and fearless in the face of great personal danger and engaged in some of the most fascinating and spectacular manhunt ever recorded.
