From School Library Journal
Grade 3-5-Annie Oakley was born Phoebe Ann Moses in 1860 in Ohio. Her life story is told here-from her fatherless childhood through her marriage to Frank Butler and glory days traveling with Buffalo Bill's show to her death, 18 days before her husband's, in 1926. "Little Sure Shot," as she was nicknamed by Sitting Bull, truly had a one-of-a-kind life. She raised herself up from a poor, abused baby-sitter to a sharpshooting show woman who enchanted Queen Victoria out of her post-Albert funk, no less. However, while her biography is presented in full here, the prose is rather dry and uninviting. The black-and-white cartoons that pad the book are no better. Although two time lines are appended, there is no index. Sue Macy's Bull's-Eye (National Geographic, 2001) is a wonderful photobiography of Oakley that will be far more helpful for reports and is more enjoyable reading.

I would recommend this book to people who want to make a change in history.
I rated this book a 4 because I liked somethings but not other things like how some people treated her when she was a child or how she had to move away from her parents.
