Bull's-Eye: A Photobiography of Annie Oakley Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
