Annie Oakley by Shirl Kasper

Despite her great fame, the popular image of Annie Oakley is far from true. She was neither a swaggering western gal nor a sweet “little girl.” Annie Oakley was a competitive and resolute woman who wanted to be the best and succeeded. In this comprehensive biography Shirl Kasper sets the record straight, giving us an accurate, honest, and compelling portrait of the woman known as “Little Sure Shot.” Annie Oakley provides a vivid and unforgettable portrait of this American original: a prim and proper woman, conservative in her views, hand-working and frugal, whose greatest source of pride was to be accepted as “a lady.” Goodreads.
