A survivor who refused to give up.
The Amazing Life and Times of Annie Oakley.
"Aim at a high mark and you will hit it" is the motto the legendary sharpshooter and star of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, Annie Oakley, lived by. How did a young girl growing up on a hardscrabble Ohio farm become a legend in her own time?
Based on her own writings and illustrated with hauntingly expressive oil paintings by one of America's foremost illustrators, this dramatic picture-book biography offers a fascinating glimpse into the life of a courageous young girl who went on to break barriers in the field of sports, becoming recognized by Will Rogers and others as "the greatest woman rifle shot the world has ever produced."
