Ragged Dick

Ragged Dick by Horatio Alger, Jr.
By: (1832-1899)

Horatio Alger, Jr. was well known for his best-selling series of books highlighting “the American Dream” of poor boys making good and becoming rich and successful through “luck and pluck”. Ragged Dick was the first in this niche, and follows the adventures of Dick Hunter, a ragged bootblack as he makes the decision to “grow up ’spectable”, and how he goes about achieving his goals through the help of his friends, his inherent honesty, and his belief in hard work and study. (Summary by Alice)

Subject: Inspiring Adaptation
A story of a boy who had less than nothing. Through friendship, kindness, and hard work of his own doing, he makes himself a person that anyone would be proud to call a friend. He has no parents. A street orphan in a big city, sleeping in doorways and cardboard boxes in the alleyway's. With the help of another orphan, he learns to read and write. A great story for all ages. From zero to hero, on his own.
