When a lawbreaker heard Bass Reeves had his warrant, he knew it was the end of the trail, because Bass would track him down and bring him to justice—dead or alive. And he achieved all this in spite of whites who didn't like the notion of a black lawman.
For three decades, Bass was the most feared and respected lawman in the territories. He made more than 3,000 arrests, and though he was a crack shot and a quick draw, he only killed 14 men in the line of duty. Bad News for Outlaws reveals the story of a remarkable African American hero of the Old West.
