KIRKUS REVIEW

Crude oil used to be a cure-all for disease--between then and the demise of Standard Oil, a lot happened both to America and to petrol. Skimming the lives and times of those early drilling gamblers and tracing the ups and downs of the oil industry, the authors have produced a readable, relaxed history with lots of human interest--part technology, part economics, and a potential supplement to both.
