New York, April, 1868. Chapter I ragged dick is introduced to the reader. Ragged Dick opened his eyes slowly, and stared stupidly in the face of the speaker, but did not offer to get up. Wake up there, youngster," said a rough voice. "Wake up, you young vagabond!" said the man a little impatiently; "I suppose you'd lay there all day, if I hadn't called yo.

It had a favorable reception. One modern scholar considers the story a "puerile fantasy" about class assimilation. The plot and theme were repeated virtually in toto in Alger's subsequent novels and became the grist for parodists and satirists.

"Ragged Dick" was contributed as a serial story to the pages of the Schoolmate, a well-known juvenile magazine, during the year 1867. While in course of publication, it was received with so many evidences of favor that it has been rewritten and considerably enlarged, and is now presented to the public as the first volume of a series intended to illustrate the life and experiences of the friendless and vagrant children who are now numbered by thousands in New York and other cities.

Wish I had found this book years ago. First heard it referred to on Boardwalk Empire. Written obviously as stories to guide a young man not so much by church morals or 1st world financial expectations but by natural instinct and a personal sense of right and wrong. Alger takes the long way around to espouse honesty, encourage an industrious nature, and shed a generous light on the value of critical thinking. Classic for youngsters!

Reading this book was a required text for my English Lit class. I actually ended up enjoying more than I thought I would. Reading about Dick having a troubled life and about him wanting to do better as well as improve his life made this book really interesting. This book definitely tells the story of the underdog being able to overcome their obstacles and still come out on top.

A riveting story about a young poor boy working his way up the ladder of the streets along with some good luck mixed in to live a wonderful life!

For a classic boy's novel, this is a good read. It's definitely a glance back in time to a more iconic American era, one I miss in this day and age. This is the first book of a series, this book being the most popular. The binding is simple and the pages traditional for this paperback. The text is of an average size, about 12pt. font, and there are nice commentaries by Michael Meyer about Horatio Alger, Jr. and his works including Ragged Dick. The book measures by 4in.x7in. so its easy to pack. It's cheap enough too, so there is nothing to loose, and if you don't like it,there is somebody that should need it for school.

Standard textbook for high school or college literature class. Condition and book as expected.

(Bought from cpksales)I really enjoyed this book. A story about Ragged Dick and his journey from literal rags to riches. If you've ever spent time in NYC, you will recognize some of the famous scenes in this book. I feel this book puts things in perspective, back in the days where people worked to where they got to in life, where they appreciate what they're doing, appreciate the "little people" because it was not long before that they were there themselves.
