Inspirational story of a young man who works
hard and succeeds....
by Horatio Alger, Jr.
is one of Alger's later books. After a trip to California to get
a feel for the frontier, a few years after the Gold Rush,
Alger returned to New York and wrote a series of books about
California. Only one other has been reprinted in recent years.
Horatio Alger was, for
at least half a century, one of the most popular writers in America.
Even today, over one hundred years after Alger's death, we hear the
comment, "That's a real
Horatio Alger rags-to-riches success story." For generations this
statement has been applied to particularly successful persons who have
achieved renown despite humble beginnings.
