This is the sixth volume of the Tattered Tom Series, and the twelfth of the stories which are wholly or mainly devoted to street-life in New York. Alger wrote this book specifically to show what happens when young boys don't have the moral compass generated by "enterprise, industry and integrity."

[The Young Outlaw different from the usual rags-to-riches story by Horatio Alger -- because the "hero" [Sam Barlow] is not honorable, steals and lies when he thinks it would help, does not get to a decent life by working diligently, and ends up on the street - by Sue Squires.

This version of the book contains the three original illustrations, rejuvenated, and seven 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.
