Annie oakley

Annie Oakley was born on August 13, 1860 in rural Ohio, one hundred and fifty-years ago. She was the first female celebrity to come out of the American West-between 1885 and 1905. She is best known for starring in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show. She made a name for herself as an athlete and a record-breaking sports shooter. Bring this modern-minded woman into your life with “Bull’s-Eye” a photobiography of Annie Oakley by Sue Macy. “The Colonel and Little Missie: Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley, and the Beginnings of Superstardom in America” by Larry McMurty doesn’t sidestep myth and history, but is an entertaining book on two legendary icons on the Old West. She was one of the star attractions of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show for 17 years.
