by Edward Eggleston

Edward Eggleston (December 10, 1837 – September 3, 1902) was an American historian and novelist. Eggleston was born in Vevay, Indiana, to Joseph Cary Eggleston and Mary Jane Craig.

Edward Eggleston (December 10, 1837 – September 3, 1902) was an American historian and novelist. The author George Cary Eggleston was his brother. As a child, he was too ill to regularly attend school, so his education was primarily provided by his father. He was ordained as a Methodist minister in 1856. He wrote a number of tales, some of which, especially the "Hoosier" series, attracted much attention.

The theme of the stories was books that live. Although the books adapted for the series naturally required some condensation, the characters and stories presented display a unique view of the American experience during the nation’s formative years through the nineteenth century. Featured authors include Louisa May Alcott, Washington Irving, Mark Twain and others.

Young Jack Dudley yearns for an education that feels out of reach. He and his friends face a nearly intolerable situation at school with a mean school master and several bullies, and have the added stress of financial detain at home. In spite of it all, Jack follows his mother's good example and applies himself to his studies, protects the younger children, and tried to be a good citizen. His hard work does not go unnoticed, and Jack soon finds that if he's willing to work as hard as he ever has, he stands a chance of reaching his dreams.

It's a good book, a story which really shows the hardships children of that circumstance may have lived through in those times.
Edward Eggleston wrote this book for juveniles in 1883. I read it years ago as a child. The book describes how a boy in his early teens met the challenges of his day as he attended a local school. I purchased and reread the book, because the behavior of some of our leaders of today reminded me of the behavior of the bullies in the story.
Nice large text and an intriguing glimpse into the mind of an interesting and creative writer--and the long-gone, innocent world he lived in. It is listed as being for children, but an adult should enjoy it as well. Be forewarned, though, that it reflects the culture and values of the setting, 1850s Indiana, so you may want to read it yourself before reading it to your child.
Purchased as gift my Indiana-born family member who enjoyed this book as a child. In good shape. As described. Very cool in terms of sample of writing at the time and representative of people's experiences of the time according to my family. Thanks. I enjoy the style of writing.
Worth the read.
