But Emily Arnold McCully presents the story of Tarbell and her times with such nuance and depth that young readers will appreciate Tarbell's difficult circumstances, vast energies and pioneering journalism. Restless and curious from an early age even after she got nightmares from sneaking a peek at three dead bodies , Tarbell grew up in Western Pennsylvania, which was drastically altered during those oil boom years, and then traveled widely as a journalist.

McCully re-creates the era's social context for women as well as the culture and importance of print media, particularly the influence of magazines such as McClure's, where Ida made her mark.
