With a widowed mother and six siblings, Annie Oakley first became a trapper, hunter, and sharpshooter simply to provide food for her family. Eventually her skill with a gun led her to Buffalo Bill's Wild West. Oakley urged women to take up shooting to procure food, protect themselves, and enjoy the exercise, yet she was always the proper Victorian lady. By Glenda Riley. 252 pages.
