Description
 
Chronicles the rise to fame, fortune, & international celebrity of two of the West’s most enduring figures -- & America’s first real superstars. From the 1800s to the end of his life in 1917, Buffalo Bill Cody was as famous as anyone could be. Annie Oakley was his most celebrated protégée, the “slip of a girl” from Ohio who could outshoot anybody to become the most celebrated star of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show. This dual biography explores the lives, the legends, & above all the truths about them. With his Wild West show, Buffalo Bill helped invent the image of the West that still exists today -- cowboys & Indians, rodeo rough rides, sheriffs & outlaws, trick shooting, & Stetsons. The short, slight Annie Oakley spent 16 years with the Wild West show. Photos.
