Probably the only way forward is installing Indesign CS6, which was the last version that could open Ragemaker files, and save the conversions out in indd. However, like any conversion, the process isn't perfect. Hopefully you've got pdf or hardcopies to refer to if you need to make them exact copies.

Following up on John's suggestion, I just want to point out that if you have a creative cloud subscription you can download CS6 InDesign at no extra cost. Just go to the pull-down menu (the "V") next to the InDesign listing in the desktop app and choose the option for previous versions. Keep in mind though that CS6 is not supported for Mac OS El Capitan or above or Windows 10 so just use it for conversions. You can have it installed at the same time as other versions of InDesign though so that shouldn't be a problem.
