In 1978, with a nest egg of more than 5 billion dollars, the Mellons were America's richest family. The Mellons is an irreverent, unauthorized, but not unkind account of this family's rise, from the humble circumstances of birth of the dynasty's founder, Judge Thomas Mellon, on a potato farm in Ireland in 1813, to super-opulence through the Gulf Oil Corporation.

The stories offered in this book focus on the 10 richest families in America, along with a few others we deemed worthy of an appearance. Forbes compiled the first ranking of the richest families in 2014, but has written about these storied clans for nearly 100 years. One thing we’ve found: The ability to efficiently hand control over within a family empire is easier said than done. These stories provide a snapshot into the lives of America’s richest families, and how they built-and sustained-their empires.
