Description

This early 20th-century classic chronicles the adventures of an orphaned newspaper boy in his “hand-to-hand scuffle” with life in a midwestern metropolis. Gene Stratton-Porter’s faith in the healing power of nature is also apparent, in a lovingly depicted tamarack swamp set near the city.
