Hi! I’m Sophie. I’m going on this “Strong Historical American Women Tour” with my mom and sister tomorrow (I am not packed yet). It is mostly to see Laura Ingalls Wilder houses and stuff, because of my mom. I have been a huge Annie Oakley fan since I was about 8: I was looking through a stack of old books that my mom had got out, and I came across a “Step into Reading” book, called “Little Sure Shot: The Story of Annie Oakley”, and I sat down and read it right there. The book only had 48 pages, so I finished pretty quickly. But I couldn’t put it down. I read it over and over, until I pretty much had it memorized. I went to the library and I got as many books about her as I could. But now, almost 5 years later, I still have that same book about Little Sure Shot that started it all off, and that inspired me to ask my mom if we could go to her grave on our tour as well, so we changed the name from “Laura Ingalls Wilder Tour” to “SHAW” tour.
