He is best known for his many juvenile "rags-to-riches" narratives about the rise of boys from humble backgrounds to lives of middle-class security through hard work, determination, courage, and honesty. Thus, his somewhat biographical writings had a formative effect on American youth during the Gilded Age. He produced books in large quantities, most of them during the period of 18 to 18. Our selection is taken from the later period of his activity.< Less

Bernard Brooks' Adventures By Horatio Alger
eBook (ePub): $3.99

He claimed to have been educated at a small Western college, and on the strength of it had established himself in the country and advertised for private pupils at a low rate. These were mostly young, and not competent to see his deficiencies, but Bernard was old enough and well enough educated to perceive and comment on them. This greatly annoyed Mr. Snowdon, who felt that the boy did not treat him with proper respect.< Less
