Reviewed with Jason Porterfield's Annie Oakley.
Gr. 2-4. Aimed at very young researchers, this new series has the most unwieldy of names: Primary Sources of Famous People in American History. Yet the books are written in the simplest of language, and the design features big print with lots of white space, many contemporaneous pictures, and an abbreviated time line and glossary. Annie Oakley's colorful history is captured more in the photographs than in the basic text, but it does cover her hardscrabble early life; her tour with Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show (where she met her husband and manager, Frank Butler); and her devotion to Native American rights and teaching women to shoot. Jesse James follows the same format. Kids will be attracted, but the book is less successful, perhaps because it is harder to explain the allure of robbery and murder in simple terms.
