Synopsis: Chronicles the rags-to-riches tale of a Scottish immigrant who used most of the millions he earned as a steel tycoon set up a fund for the advancement of science, education, and peace.

From Booklist: Gr. 7-10. Like other Lerner Biographies, this jacketed volume looks more sophisticated than most books in nonfiction series. The content bears out first impressions, offering readers information about Carnegie's life, supplemented with nicely reproduced black-and-white images. Edge covers the Scottish immigrant's rise from bobbin boy to industrial magnate, with the Homestead Strike of 1892 and his "Gospel of Wealth" philanthropy receiving particularly insightful treatment: "It seemed [Carnegie] wanted to lower labor costs and to appear before the world as a big-hearted, pro-labor employer, loved by one and all." Edge also describes Carnegie's anti-slavery convictions; his fervent patriotism, earning him the nickname "The Star-Spangled Scotchman"; and his curious promotion of a simplified version of English. The narrative concludes with chapter notes documenting the numerous primary-source quotations, a bibliography, a glossary, and useful Web addresses for researchers. Children will come away with a good sense of a man driven by contradictory impulses, as apt to be ashamed of his fortunes as he was to gleefully remark to a friend, "I'm rich! I'm rich!"
