Annie Oakley

The book gave a lot of attention to Annie's childhood as well as adult years. It was interesting to learn how things were back in those days when life was much harder than today and hunting skills might mean the difference between eating or not eating. it is always good to read and hear stories of strong women who were capable of so much despite their gender. .
