Publisher Description:
The hero of "Ragged Dick" is a veritable "diamond in the rough" - as innately virtuous as he is streetwise and cocky. Immediately popular with young readers, the novel also appeals to parents, who responded to its colorful espousal of the Protestant ethic. "Struggling Upward, " published nearly thirty years later, followed the same time-tested formulas, and despite critical indifferece it, too, had mass appeal.
