More than 200 pictures reveal the striking personalities of this extraordinary family and the glittering interiors in which they led their fabled lives. Their art treasures are beautifully reproduced in color; and pictured, too, are many of the press photos that kept the Vanderbilts in the public eye. Genealogical charts and a map showing the "Vanderbilt Country" of old New York are included as well. All in all, it is an epic story, clearly chronicled and dazzlingly portrayed.

In The Vanderbilts, Paterson sums up the decadant excess of America's Gilded Age, at the center of which lay the powerful Vanderbilt family. This is however, more than a tale of yachts and hundred room mansions but of the social rivalry, infighting and one-upsmanship that spelled the end of the fortune.
