Phil Brent's mean-spirited step-mother cooks up a scheme to cheat him out of his rightful inheritance by claiming her son is Phil when Phil's father comes looking for him. It is nip-and-tuck through the rest of the book whether Phil will prevail -- indeed, whether he will survive the trials and tribulations placed in his path by evil-dooers and neer-do-wells.

This version of the book contains the single original illustration, rejuvenated, and nine additional place-, time-, and subject-relevant illustrations that are unique to this edition of the book.

Horatio Alger, Jr. (January 13, 1832 – July 18, 1899) was a prolific 19th-century American author, best known for his many formulaic juvenile novels about impoverished boys and their rise from humble backgrounds to lives of middle-class security and comfort through hard work, determination, courage, and honesty. His writings were characterized by the "rags-to-riches" narrative, which had a formative effect on America during the Gilded Age.
