Wild West
Oklahombres member Art Burton has struck again. The Feb. 2007 issue of Wild West magazine has as it's cover and theme Billy the Kid but on examination the famed US Deputy Marshal Bass Reeves receives equal treatment. Art rates not only a full length article on Reeves but the coveted interview as well. Way to go Art!!!

Also, last week Charlie Rose, the TV talk host interviewed actor Morgan Freeman, who mentioned Bass Reeves (I did not see the interview but was told about it). Shortly thereafter Art's book went to about 16,000 on Amazon, which is a phenomenal rating for a book published by an academic press. Congratulations!

At the Bass Reeves presentation held at OHS a few months ago, Art mentioned that Morgan Freeman has indicated that he will not retire from acting until he has been able to portray Bass Reeves. That would a fantastic movie to say the least!
