National Geographic's award-winning photobiography of Annie Oakley is the stirring story of an enduring American heroine that has won widespread acclaim and was named a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year.
Her amazing life comes sharply into focus in a compelling narrative, period photography, and her own words. Two historical maps and a chronology ground the legend in time and place.
Readers ride through a life filled with adventure. A dynamic woman of American lore, Annie grows up in the backwoods of Ohio, hunting game to feed her family. Discovered by Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West Show, she wows crowds with target shooting and daring horse riding.
Annie's hardships are examined, too, as is her inspirational status as a role model for women.
