FemdogloversWWBclub “Annie Oakley of the Wild West” by Walter Havighurst& U Dog
January 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EST
Female doglovers (no prejuduce to our fab male doglovers as wingwomen’s an all female group) & their dogs are invited to join my wingwomen (WW) bookclub. We’re having another fun & fascinating WW bookclub on Wednesday, January 25 at 7pm. We’ll meet to discuss the fascinating, delightfully written, well researched biography “Annie Oakley of the Wild West” by Walter Havighurst.
Born in rural Ohio in 1860, Annie Moses rose from poverty to become Annie Oakley, the diminutive star of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show who could outshoot any man. She comes fully to life in this rousing biography by Walter Havighurst, the respected historian of the Old Northwest. In her probing introduction to this Bison Book edition, Christine Bold considers the striking incongruities, the symbolic meanings, of Annie Oakley’s life and career.
We’ll discuss this book & have a fabulous time, be stimulated, enjoy wonderful company, friendship & bond-all in one evening! Hope to see you on January 25 & also if we’re all fortunate at prior bookclubs.
“Walter Havighurst has done full justice to Annie Oakley’s story … he has included an account of Buffalo Bill’s famous Wild West show in which Missie, as Cody called her, was a star for seventeen years … I don’t see how this book could be improved upon.” Saturday Review of Literature
“Annie Oakley is a pleasure to know in [these] pages, as she was once a pleasure to watch in the arena.” New York Times
Delightfully written and well illustrated. Highly recommended.” Library Journal
