“After an interesting introduction to the beginnings of the industry, Aaseng takes readers through a who’s who of its greatest pioneers. . . . Each biography gives excellent insights into the individual, the period, and the industry at that time. The portraits are easy to understand, well researched, authoritative, and fascinating to read. Black-and-white photographs of the men and oil sites enhance the well-written text. . . . Teachers will find enough information for lively discussions about the oil industry.”
