Oh, this is my favorite of all of Horatio Alger's rags-to-riches tales. Like all the stories in the Tattered Tom and Ragged Dick series of novellas, it has a wonderful story and a great ending. But this one has such an marvelous and unexpected twist, I didn't see it coming. I lost track of my copy of this one book, and I've looked for it over the years. Not an easy one to track down at an affordable price.

Not only is this a fine piece of literature, but the illustrations are well worth the price of admission. One particular diecut, entitled "Chloroforming Young Paul," is my favorite piece of art, ever.
