About the Show

AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: She was the toast of New York, London, Paris and eventually the world. She was 'adopted' by Chief Sitting Bull, charmed the Prince of Prussia and entertained the likes of Oscar Wilde and Queen Victoria. Annie Oakley excelled in a man's world by doing what she loved, and won fame and fortune as the little lady from Ohio who never missed a shot. This is the story of a diminutive sharpshooter who pulled herself out of the depths of poverty to become a performer who symbolised the Wild West.
