DK Biography: Annie Oakley

Born to a poor family, Annie Oakley learned to shoot so she could hunt for food — and she discovered she had a knack for it! By the age of 15, she had beaten a sharpshooter and was making a name for herself for impressive trick shots. And as one of the stars of Buffalo Bill's Wild West show, she not only wowed audiences with her performances — which included shooting cards tossed in the air, shooting over her shoulder with a mirror, and even snuffing a candle with a shot — she also created a new vision for womanhood: one in which exercise, outdoor living, and adventure were admired!

Perfect for book reports or summer reading, this book from DKs acclaimed Biography line shines the spotlight on a daring woman who defied convention and expectation. With detailed sidebars, a vocabulary list, and visual timeline, kids will get a better vision of Oakley's life and the world in which she lived. Packed with exciting details, this is a vivacious look at a woman who was larger than life!
