This early 20th-century classic chronicles the adventures of an orphaned newspaper boy in his ""hand-to-hand scuffle"" with life in a midwestern metropolis. Gene Stratton-Porter's faith in the healing power of nature is also apparent, in a lovingly depicted tamarack swamp set near the city.

From the Back Cover:

Jimmy turned to step from the gutter to the sidewalk. Two things happened to him simultaneously: Mickey became a projectile and smashed with the force of a wiry fist on the larger boy's head, while above both, an athletic arm was thrust out, and gripped him by the collar.

About the Author:

Gene Stratton-Porter (1863--1924) was born on a farm in Indiana. She later lived in a cabin adjoining the Limberlost Swamp, immortalized in her best-selling A Girl of the Limberlost. In 1923 she moved to California for her health, but was killed in an automobile accident in 1924. Other Stratton-Porter novels reissued by Indiana University Press include Freckles, Laddie, The Harvester, and The Keeper of the Bees.
