About Book

From Library Journal
Originally published in the early 1900s, this volume tells the story of the title character, a plucky orphan growing up in a Midwestern metropolis. O'Halloran's existence is dismal until he meets another orphaned child, and together they try to make a life for themselves. A little hokey, but stick with it.

Book Description
1915. Stratton-Porter was an American feminist, environmentalist, photographer and one of Indiana's most famous female authors. Many of her writings were moralistic and romantic novels. Michael O'Halloran begins: Aw kid, come on! Be square! You look out what you say to me. But ain't you going to keep your word? Mickey, do you want your head busted? Naw! But I did your work so you could loaf; now I want the pay you promised me. Let's see you get it! Better take it from me, hadn't you? You're twice my size; you know I can't, Jimmy!

He was holding the child gently and stroking her tumbled hair. When he put her from him to see her face, Mickey was filled with envy because he had been forced to admit the gift was not from him. He shut his lips tight, but his face was grim as he studied Peaches' flushed cheeks and wet eyes, and noted the shaking eagerness for the doll she was afraid to look at. He reached over and put it into her arms, then piled the pillows so she could see better, talking the while to comfort her.
