More About the Author

Ann Bausum writes about U.S. history from her home in Wisconsin, and speaks across the country about her work as an author. In 2014 the National Geographic Society published her first book for adults simultaneously with her tenth work for younger readers. Both books--Sergeant Stubby and Stubby the War Dog--celebrate the almost-forgotten story of a stray dog smuggled to Europe during World War I who returned to the United States after serving in the trenches and became a national celebrity.

These books are the latest works from a career of writing about under-told stories from the past. Her works for young readers have earned consistent recognition from librarians, peers, and reviewers. Marching to the Mountaintop (2012) won the Carter G. Woodson Award (middle grade level) from the National Council for the Social Studies and was a Jane Addams Children's Book Honor title. Other recent works include Unraveling Freedom (2010), another book that captures forgotten history from World War I, and Denied, Detained, Deported (2009) which also received the Carter G. Woodson Award (secondary level).

Muckrakers (2007) earned the Golden Kite Award as best nonfiction book of the year from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. Freedom Riders (2006) gained Sibert Honor designation from the American Library Association, and With Courage and Cloth (2004) received the Jane Addams Children's Book Award as the year's best book on social justice issues for older readers. These and other titles appear on numerous lists of recommended and notable books.

Bausum's other books chronicle the nation's chief executives and their spouses--Our Country's Presidents (2013, 4th edition) and Our Country's First Ladies (2007)--as well as the exploits of intrepid explorer Roy Chapman Andrews (Dragon Bones and Dinosaur Eggs, 2000).

Format: Hardcover
Ann Bausum's fascinating narrative is a must for any educator who is currently teaching American Literature or American History in their classroom curriculum. First hand accounts, political cartoons, and photographs of America's greatest investigative journalists brings history alive for any student. Don't skip the forward by Daniel Schorr a legend of investigative journalism in his own right. The resource guide is impressive and Ann's website allows students to search for photographs and information on investigative journalism by accessing the Library of Congress! Bravo Ann! This book is a supplemental must for high school students who may currently be working on their Junior Thesis.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a superficial portrait of Tarbell, Sinclair, Steffens; and an elementary introduction to the dawn of true in-depth muckraking: exposés of corporate, labor, and political corruption.

I'm a career journalist, and I purchased the book without realizing it was for children. So I was disappointed. But I'm not a child anymore.
