Publisher Description

Discover the nineteenth-century woman who became one of America’s first investigative journalists in this “lively” biography (Booklist, starred review).
 
A YALSA-ALA Finalist for Excellence in Young Adult Nonfiction
 
Born in 1857 and raised in oil country, Ida M. Tarbell became widely known for her series of articles on the Standard Oil Trust—a complicated business empire run by tycoon John D. Rockefeller—that revealed to readers the underhanded, even illegal practices that had led to Rockefeller’s success.
 
Rejecting the term “muckraker” to describe her profession, she went on to achieve remarkable prominence for a woman of her generation as a writer and shaper of public opinion. This biography from a Caldecott Medal winner offers an engrossing portrait of a trailblazer in a man’s world who left her mark on America.
