Bad News for Outlaws by Vaunda Micheaux Nelson

We’re proud of our local authors!

Vaunda Micheaux Nelson is a former Pittsburgher who now lives in New Mexico. Her new book is an exciting, inspiring piece of the Old West.

This biography of Bass Reeves begins with a shootout, continues with an escape from slavery, and follows Bass Reeves through his years as a legendary lawman.  Bass is brave, strong, and incorruptible. He brings in the outlaws and risks his own life to save others.

“Right and wrong were clear and simple” for Bass Reeves, but one day, his sense of duty is tested in a momentous way.   To find out how, and to see more about this hero of the Old West, read Bad News for Outlaws: The Remarkable Life of Bass Reeves, Deputy U.S. Marshal.

Update: And it just won the Coretta Scott King Award! Congratulations, Vaunda!
