KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of immigrant entrepreneurs and the vast empire they created discusses the French origin of the du Ponts and the establishment of the gunpowder factor on the rocky banks of the Brandywine River, its founders, management and growth. The student of economic history will find it interesting, as will the many children escort to the Hagley Mill museum on organized school excursions.
