The Colonel and Little Missie
Buffalo Bill, Annie Oakley, and the Beginnings of Superstardom in AmericaLarge Print - 2005
From the early 1880's to the end of his life in 1917, Buffalo Bill Cody was as famous as anyone could be. Annie Oakley was his most celebrated protegee, the "slip of a girl" from Ohio who could (and did) outshoot anybody to become the most celebrated star of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. In this sweeping dual biography, Larry McMurtry explores the lives, the legends, and the truth about two larger-than-life American figures.
