inspiring story and insightful
The performance was great in that it immerses you in the story. Sometimes get lost with the
list of names, but the audible book was a great inspiring listen. It really gets the metal movie going. The book gets one thinking about all the American History that isn't taught.

This is American history untold in American schools. Not only was the story of US Marshall Bass Reeves dynamic and inspiring but the period and location of his story is very revealing. From the sad transition through slavery to Plessy and legal segregation via "separate but equal" and the lost of Indian land into the State of Oklahoma the listener is sitting in a classroom of a story untold.
I highly recommend this audio and it's great narration by Ron Butler even if you're not looking to understand the true American story.
