    Ragged Dick details the adventures of Richard Hunter, a homeless boy who earns a living shining shoes on the streets of Manhattan in the mid 1800s. Inspired by a customer he meets, Dick resolves to improve his situation, finds a roommate who can act as his tutor, and overcomes adversity with wit and good cheer. First published in book form in 1866, Ragged Dick was Alger's first great publishing success.

    Story

    This is a typical Alger story. Rags to riches with an incredible amount of good luck for the heros. Alger was immensly popular during his time frame and this may appeal to history buffs for that reason. If you want a feel good story that ends well everytime and are not hung up on reality this is a fun read...or it would be with a better narrator. The gentleman who narrates Marjorie Morningstar would be excellent. Unfortunately, Christopher Crennen narrates like he is reading a laundry list and a boring one at that. A certain unpleasant twang on certain words doesn't help. He does articulate well.
