Tarbell's story, serialized by McClure's from 1902 to 1904, recounts the history of John D. Rockefeller's company. The first major industrial monopoly in the U.S., Standard Oil was, in 1901, the largest corporation in the country, and at its peak controlled as much as eighty-five percent of oil refining in America. But with all his wealth and power, Rockefeller could not protect himself from Tarbell. Her story of the company, which became a model for investigative journalists, placed the blame for increasingly commercialized American ideals and materialistic values at Rockefeller's doorstep

"In this frank and informative autobiography, the veteran investigative journalist Ida M. Tarbell looks back on her nearly fifty-year career. At the age of eighty-two, one of the original muckrakers writes with characteristic candor and intelligence about a life spent defying categories and challenging complacency. Robert C. Kochersberger's introduction gives an overview of Tarbell's life and work, including achievements she omitted from her memoir out of modesty, and examines her enduring value to journalists of the twenty-first century."
