At last, National Geographic's award-winning photobiography of Annie Oakley bursts into paperback. This stirring story of an enduring American heroine has won widespread acclaim and was named a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year.

Annie's amazing life comes sharply into focus in a compelling narrative, period photography, and in her own words. Two historical maps and a chronology ground the legend in time and place.

Readers ride through a life filled with adventure. 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.

Awards include:

  • American Library Association Notable Book
  • Best Book of the Year—School Library Journal
  • Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List

From the Trade Paperback edition.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

From Booklist:

Gr. 5-8. When a person becomes a legend, it can be difficult to sort out the truth, especially in the case of Annie Oakley, whose life was relentlessly fictionalized. Macy does a good job of sifting out the facts and retelling them in an enjoyable fashion. Born in rural Ohio, eight-year-old Phoebe Ann Moses took the family shotgun to find supper one day and was seemingly never seen again without a gun in her hands. She was soon shooting game to sell to restaurants, a practice that led her to a marksmanship contest with sharpshooter Frank Butler, who eventually became her husband, costar, and manager. At the end of her 20-year career, Oakley had toured with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, performed on Broadway, and garnered acclaim from both sides of the Atlantic. Macy's readable, attractive biography, which conveys both Oakley's homespun simplicity and her business savvy, is illustrated with beautiful sepia-tone photographs and drawings--a combination that will satisfy students and browsers alike. A chronology and a bibliography are appended. Randy Meyer
