Annie Oakley
By Sharon Fabian

1     Annie Oakley was a star. In the days before TV and videos, Annie Oakley was a star in live performances. She performed for audiences all across the United States and Europe.
2     Today, the most famous performers are often actors or singers, but Annie Oakley didn't act or sing. She didn't play a musical instrument or dance. She wasn't a famous sports personality, either. Annie Oakley was a sharpshooter. She was a markswoman who could shoot anything with a pistol, a rifle, or a shotgun.
3     Her full name was Phoebe Ann Oakley Moses, and she was born in Ohio on August 13, 1860, the fifth of seven children. Her parents were Quakers from Pennsylvania. They had made their living as tavern keepers. Then, when a fire destroyed their tavern, they decided to move west. They settled in Ohio, which had become an established farming area; it was not the Wild West.
4     Annie's father died when she was six years old, and she went to live on a county poor farm. She worked for a local family who treated her badly. Later on, she was able to go back to live with her mother. By the age of 9, she was providing food for her family by trapping and shooting game.
