Who Was Annie Oakley?

"Aim at a high mark and you will hit it." Annie Oakley was born in 1860, and while other girls her age were keeping house, she learned to shoot so that she could hunt for more food for her impoverished family. She turned out to be a natural, and after winning a shooting contest against a sharpshooter at the age of 15, she joined Buffalo Bill's Wild West, astounding audiences with her trick shooting, horse-riding, action-packed performances. She would end up traveling around the world — and teaching thousands of women about the value of exercise, outdoor living, and independence.

This captivating illustrated biography from the Who Was...? series introduces middle grade readers to a woman who lived life on her own terms. Kids will enjoy the black-and-white cartoons illustrating key moments in Oakley's life, as well as the sidebars with additional interesting historical details.
