Rockefeller, Sr., who amassed a fortune amid the muck and disorder of the Pennsylvania oil fields and left his son to deal with the public outcry. It follows Rockefeller junior as he built the charities and foundations that made the name a public institution, and it tracks the lives of the junior Rockefeller’s five brothers, including David, whose name became synonymous with the world of banking and finance, and Nelson, future governor and presidential aspirant. This is a saga of immense dimensions cast against the backdrop of our country’s history with a spectacular array of characters.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A tale of family tensions and neuroses, of money, influence, and power…vivid, absorbing…remarkable!” New York Times Book Review
“A startling tale emerges, shattering all we know and believe about the Rockefellers, destroying the legend brutally with significant revelations—and yet, winning a depth of sympathy for Rockefellers which three generations of PR men have not been able to manufacture.” Washington Post Book World
“Impressive and intelligent…Skillfully organized and presented so that it matters—not only to those curious about the Rockefellers, but to anyone curious about money and power in our society.” Newsweek
“A skillful portrait of great wealth…A vast sweep of world-shaping episodes, dates, and names.” Houston Chronicle
