Southside Virginia based author, Herbert E. Brown's latest book has been released on October 7, 2010. Brown's new work is a collection of twelve Western stories, featuring courageous, resourceful, and fiercely determined African-American men who stood behind the lawman's star and wore the uniform of the Buffalo Soldier. Brown spins twelve vivid tales about these larger than life characters who embody a kind of rare honor that compels them to freely risk their lives in order to protect their homes and communities. However, they are at the same time constantly forced to grapple with the paradox that is their reality: being black, disrespected, often despised, and discriminated against, but are involved in law enforcement or the U.S. Military.
"Legendary Black Lawmen and Tales of the Buffalo Soldiers" is not only a book that will entertain the readers with its suspenseful and action style tales, it will also inform them of the many facts concerning the true contributions that African-Americans made to the development and expansion of the Wild West. For example, the large number of all-colored towns â€“ there were once twenty-nine such towns in the Oklahoma territory alone. There were also all-colored towns in Ohio, Kansas, Colorado, and California too. Brown explores not only the oppressive race relations between African-Americans and whites, but also the complex and very troubling relationship between African-Americans and Native Americans too: as the Buffalo Soldiers were primarily used to fight, suppress, and contain Native Americans who were popularly viewed as an impediment to white national progress.
