The Yellow Kids: Foreign Correspondents in the Heyday of Yellow Journalism - Joyce Milton

I thought this would be a fascinating read, since I'm involved in journalism and the period of the major yellow journalists has always held a bit of a fascination for me. But I had a lot of trouble getting into this book, and it sometimes felt like a bit of a chore to read.

That said, the information it provides is broad and the in-depth look at the lives of journalists like Scovel and Crane, in an era when journalism looked very different, were fascinating in short bursts and I found the account of San Juan Hill very interesting and well-framed. Overall, worth a look if this particular aspect of American communication history is something that interests you.
