School Library Journal Review

Gr 5-8-The legendary Annie Oakley is demystified in this appreciative biography. Beginning with her subject's poor childhood, Flynn covers the sharpshooter's life, her attempts to keep her family fed by shooting wild game, the abuse she suffered in a foster home, her romance and marriage, and her public appearances. The indomitable, independent spirit that shaped this woman's life and made her an inspiration to others comes through clearly. With sensitivity, the author relates the facts as well as some of the stories that have created the legend. The book has a good index and interesting black-and-white archival photographs.-Marilyn Fairbanks, East Junior High School, Brockton, MA (c) Copyright 2010.
