Bad news for outlaws : the remarkable life of Bass Reeves, deputy U.S. marshal by Vaunda Micheaux Nelson( Book )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 3,473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sitting tall in the saddle, with a wide-brimmed black hat and twin Colt pistols on his belt, Bass Reeves seemed bigger than life. Outlaws feared him. As a deputy U.S. Marshal and former slave who escaped to freedom in the Indian Territories, Bass was cunning and fearless. When a lawbreaker heard Bass Reeves had his warrant, he knew it was the end of the trail, because Bass always got his man, dead or alive. He achieved all this in spite of whites who didn't like the notion of a black lawman. For three decades, Bass was the most feared and respected lawman in the territories. He made more than 3,000 arrests, and though he was a crack shot and a quick draw, he only killed fourteen men in the line of duty

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the working world, basic mathematical ability and well-refined problem-solving and research skills are in great demand. But school teachers and librarians often find it difficult to interest their students in math, research, and problem solving. Zoolutions introduces a fun and interesting way for teachers to approach these topics, focusing on problem solving and research in a group environment. The book provides a number of questions about animals - including mice, tigers, polar bears, giraffes, and elephants - that require students to locate information on the animal, read and analyze this information critically, and determine the solution using math and reasoning. As a result of this process, students feel more confident in their ability to solve problems. They will develop the ability to use information and ideas, and enjoy using math! Zoolutions makes the school library a central part of school life by helping teachers and librarians integrate research skills into the curriculum and will help teachers and librarians address the need for math reform and implement the recommendations of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
