The Life and Legacy of Annie Oakley is the first interpretive biography of Annie Oakley. Overcoming poverty, prejudice, physical setbacks, and her own shyness, Oakley became a star in Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West show. In the first chapter, Glenda Riley recounts Oakley's childhood, her development as a shooter, and her marriage to Frank Butler. Subsequent chapters present Oakley's life - as entertainer, sport shooter, lady, and western woman. In the final chapter, Riley assesses changes in the interpretation of Oakley's image since her death in 1926.
