About the Author:

Ragged Dick is Horatio Algerís most notorious short story that helped shaped American identity and shed light on the number and severity of boys living on the street in New York. Read about how Ragged Dick starts out as a street boy and bootblack and eventually pulls himself up by his bootstraps.

Review:

Fourteen-year-old Dick Hunter lives on the streets of New York in the 1860s. His parents are dead, and he has been on his own since the age of seven. He shines shoes to earn a living. He sleeps in boxes. He jokes about having a mansion on Fifth Avenue and about owning shares of Erie Railroad stock. But he cannot imagine ever being more than a bootblack who spends every cent he earns and lives hand-to-mouth--until by chance he meets Frank Whitney. --From the Publisher
