Series Review
The focus in each volume is on the ingenuity of the subject and the individual’s drive to overcome often difficult circumstances, Walker in providing support for her daughter through poverty and Reconstruction, Hershey enduring through multiple failed business startups. Informative sidebars break up and complement the texts. For example, Walker’s includes an intriguing paragraph on an early mentor, hair product pioneer Annie Malone, while Vanderbilt’s addresses “What is a Robber Baron?” Photographs and other illustrations are plentiful and well documented. Even with the earlier historical figures, such as Whitney, stock images give a flavor for the life and times. The writing is straightforward but not oversimplified. There are no source or bibliographic notes. VERDICT Worthwhile high interest introductions to significant figures in U.S. business history.
