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. “Well-written and thoroughly researched.” —School Library Journal Includes photos, bibliography, and index

Ida Minerva Tarbell (November 5, 1857 - January 6, 1944) was an American teacher, author and journalist. She was known as one of the leading "muckrakers" of her day, work known in modern times in the progressive era as "investigative journalism." She wrote many notable magazine series and biographies. She is best-known for her 1904 book The History of the Standard Oil Company, which is 654 pages long and was listed as number five in a 1999 list by the New York Times of the top 100 works of twentieth- century American journalism. She began her work on The Standard after her editors at McClure's Magazine called for a story on one of The Trusts. She thought the public would be bored by the story of the oil regions, even though its head John D. Rockefeller, Sr. had bankrupted her father.

It takes no extended examination of any period in the last fifty years—the term covered by the phrase “Our Times” in the title of this book—to convince an unprejudiced student that as far as the tariff is concerned public opinion has never been fairly embodied in the bills adopted. If the popular understanding of protection as expressed in our elections had been conscientiously followed, there would be to-day no duties on iron and steel products, on cheap cottons and cotton mixtures, and, certainly none on a great variety of raw materials probably including raw wool.
