The case of Little Charley Ross, clearly overshadowed by other future more famous kidnapping, was in 1874 the forerunner of such cases. While the historian in me wishes Zierold had footnoted his sources, Little Charley Ross seems to be an accurate and unbiased book, with many details I had not previously known and a centerfold of interesting pictures. My only wish is that he could have included his own theory as to Charley's fate, perhaps in the afterwood.

Comments to eBook Little Charley Ross: America's First Kidnapping for Ransom
Hirah
This book is over 40 years old, but arrived to me in excellent condition.
Doukasa
I ran into this book entirely by chance in the musty stacks of used bookstore and naturally became very excited, as my website, a missing persons database, is named after Charley Ross. Excepting Christian Ross's memoir, this is one of only two book-length studies of the kidnapping. The other is We Is Got Him: The Kidnapping that Changed America; I haven't read that yet. Charley's story is his father Christian's story, a heartbreaking moral dilemma that will touch people now just as much as it did in 1874.

While the historian in me would have liked Zierold to footnote his sources, Little Charley Ross seems to be an accurate and unbiased book, with many details I had not previously known and a centerfold of pictures. My only wish is that Zierold could have included his own theory as to Charley's fate in the afterword. However, this is a minor quibble and the book is well worth reading without it.
Bandiri
As far as I know it's the only full and detailed account of Charley Ross's abduction. This fascinating case is sadly all but forgotten today; I wish they would bring this book back into print so more people could know Charley's story.

Highly recommended, if you can get a copy.
