Fort Smith, Arkansas, is quite proud of its history. It was known as "Hell on the Border" until the advent of Judge Parker, with such outlaws as Belle Starr and Cherokee Bill and Blue Duck causing havoc, then riding across the river to Indian Territory, later Oklahoma, to hide from the law.
If you should find yourself in Fort Smith, take the time to visit the National Historic Site, which includes Judge Parker's courtroom, the jail and gallows (not the original, of course). Pay a visit to the U.S. Marshals Museum, and see the bronze statue of Bass Reeves on Garrison Avenue.
If I had proofread this book, I would have made 38 corrections.
That a black man born to slavery, Bass Reeves, could do so well for himself and so soon after the emancipation that stemmed from the American Civil War is nothing less than astounding. Some of his success seems almost unbelievable, which makes it just as well that the real life author is every bit as big a picture as the man he portrays. I am sure that Charles and Bass would have got on very well if a time skipped century or so enabled a meeting.
It is impossible to say much without lacing my review with spoilers, though to be honest it is enough to say that this short-novel, or long novella, finishes far too quickly. Lone Ranger, eat your heart out, this is how 'The West' was really won.
i really enjoyed it.
