About This Item

NEW YORK: THE CENTURY CO., 1905 NICE LOOKING GREEN COVER, WHITE PRINT AND DESIGN FRONT AND SPINE, LIGHT WEAR AND FADING SPINE. NICE ARTWORK THROUGHOUT, CLEAN AND TIGHT, TERRIFIC, ENTERTAINING BOOK. RICE WAS A WONDERFUL STORY TELLER. Samuel Sidney McClure (February 17, 1857 – March 21, 1949) was an Irish-American publisher who became known as a key figure in investigative, or muckraking, journalism. He co-founded and ran McClure's Magazine from 1893 to 1911, which ran numerous exposées of wrongdoing in business and politics, Sandy is the third book written by Alice Hegan Rice, and was the second best-selling novel in the United States in 1905. It was originally published in serial form in The Century Magazine from December 1904 through May 1905, and first appeared in novel form in April 1905. The novel is based on the boyhood stories of S. S. McClure, publisher of McClure's magazine, and his upbringing in Ireland and early struggles in the United States. Alice Hegan Rice, also known as Alice Caldwell Hegan, (January 11, 1870 – February 10, 1942) was an American novelist. Her 1901 novel Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch became a play and four films. Rice was born on January 11, 1870, in Shelbyville, Kentucky, to Samuel Watson Hegan and Sallie P. Hegan. Her father was an art dealer so she was born with a knack for creativity.[citation needed] As a child, she would entertain her family members with creative stories that she came up with on the spot.
