Overview

"Risen from the Ranks" by Horatio Alger continues the history of Harry Walton, who was first introduced to the public in the pages of "Bound to Rise." Those who are interested in learning how far he made good the promise of his boyhood, may here find their curiosity gratified. For the benefit of those who may only read the present volume, a synopsis of Harry's previous life is given in the first chapter.

In describing Harry's rise from the ranks I have studiously avoided the extraordinary incidents and pieces of good luck, which the story writer has always at command, being desirous of presenting my hero's career as one which may be imitated by the thousands of boys similarly placed, who, like him, are anxious to rise from the ranks. It is my hope that this story, suggested in part by the career of an eminent American editor, may afford encouragement to such boys, and teach them that "where there is a will there is always a way."

Searinghawk is a wiry ginger tom with gray leopardlike spots and a long tail. His eyes gleam golden, and at present he's fourteen moons. No apprentice. Ashenflame is his sister.<p>Ashenflame is a thin gray she-cat with splashes of darker gray and black and colorless eyes. Fourteen moons at the moment, she has no apprentice. Searinghawk, obviously, is her brother.
