Publisher's Summary

"Ladies and gentlemen," the announcer for Buffalo Bill's Wild West called. "Miss Annie Oakley, the little girl of the Western Plains!" Oakley galloped into the arena, firing her gun from different angles and hitting even the most difficult targets. Rivaling all other sharpshooters of her day, Annie Oakley, the first female competitive shooter, opened doors for women to new sports and new opportunities.

In Annie Oakley: Legendary Sharpshooter, author Jean Flynn explores the life of the Ohio woman who became one of the best known performers and sports stars in the world. Tracing the life of 'Little Sure Shot', Jean Flynn shows how the romantic myths surrounding Oakley's life as the 'western girl' helped create the legend of the American West that survives today.

    "Entertaining Biography"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It is the fascinating story of Annie Oakley who was not your typical female of her time. She did not let being a woman slow her down from doing something she loved and was so talented at. I had Annie Oakley confused with Calamity Jane but now that I know the difference I want to read even more about Annie.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Annie Oakley: Legendary Sharpshooter?

    I enjoyed it all, from her early hard childhood to her golden years.


    Have you listened to any of Caroline Miller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first book I have listened to that she reads and I found her voice to be very charming and well suited to this story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was very interesting and easy to listen to all at once.


    Any additional comments?

    I think parents and kids should listen together and can discuss how different things used to be for women and children.

    I received a free copy of this in exchange for an honest review

    "Good listen even for the younger set!"
    Where does Annie Oakley: Legendary Sharpshooter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is not a memoir but is a great story to dispell all the rumors about Annie Oakley.It would be great if someone was doing a book report.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Annie Oakley: Legendary Sharpshooter?

    Her life story is memorable in it self. Her life with the "wolf's" was sad.


    Have you listened to any of Caroline Miller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No but she is an excellent narrator.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The True Story of Annie Oakley.

    This audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Entertaining read of a most interesting woman"

    I enjoyed reading about this extraordinary woman and the events of her life. She was able to gain the admiration of a country, when women were still very much a second class citizen. Hope you enjoy it.
