KIRKUS REVIEW

Oil, from its earliest medicinal use to its role in an atomic civilization, is considered in this compact text. The early and primitive processes of obtaining petroleum, the first attempt at drilling, the western oil boom and the technical triumphs to which it led, the by-products of oil, and the role of oil in space travel are all described and illustrated in explicit pictures by Dirk Gringhuis. A good supplement to the study of transportation and grade school science.
