The Kid

A Scott Carson Short Story

Authored by Robert Crawford

15 years before the fateful events of 1888, six year-old West Side boy Scott Carson has his first adventure in the Lower East Side slums of New York City. He and his older friend Will embark on an adventure involving real-life historical characters Thomas Byrnes, Jacob Riis and Etta Agnell Wheeler. In this fast-moving rare short story by Robert Crawford, the reader accrues valuable context before reading Carson's bigger adventure with Jack the Ripper in Tatterdemalion. And the budding genius owes much of his character not just from his future mentor Riis but from his friend Will, who's destined to become one of the most notorious Americans of all time.
