Time Tested Books says
Charles K. McClatchy was twenty-five when he inherited the Sacramento Bee from his father, and his ensuing career as the paper’s editor extended well beyond the newsroom. Until his death in 1936, McClatchy was a consistent advocate for progressive politics, a crusader for urban reform, a staunch isolationist, and a voice for Northern California. This biography explores his career as the long-time editor of the Bee in a work that weaves the history of Northern California with that of American newspapers.

"An original work that combines scholarly acumen with shrewd analysis. It will become the ‘go to’ book for anyone interested in the role of the press in California history from the late 19th century to the mid-20th century.”
—Bill Issel, San Francisco State University

“Avella’s research is first-rate. Certainly newspaper publishing has radically changed in the last decade, and it is fascinating to read what a single publisher could accomplish and the remarkable influence wielded by a newspaper when few alternatives existed.”
—Gary F. Kurutz, California State Library Foundation
