Annie was seven years old when her mother sent her away to work. They were just too poor to keep her at home. But this little girl had a very special talent. She could shoot better than anyone. She could even shoot the cork off a bottle. By fourteen she was keeping her family alive. But who could have guessed that Annie would become internationally famous, travel the world with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, make friends with Chief Sitting Bull, even perform before Queen Victoria herself! For no one gun could outshoot Annie Oakley and her gun.
