Fame and Fortune, by Alger Jr., Horatio - Akasha Classics, AkashaPublishing.Com - Horatio Alger is famous for his 'rags to riches' tales, which combine a gripping story with a real compassion for the underdogs in life. Fame and Fortune continues the story of one of Alger's first creations, the resourceful former street urchin, Dick Hunter. Having saved the life of a wealthy man's son, Dick has been given a well-paying clerk's job. Now he continues to work his way up in the world, striving to bring some of his fellow street boys with him, including his former nemesis, the bully Micky Maguire. Alger's stories captured the imagination of 19th Century America, and his message became part of the fabric of the American Dream - with hard work and good luck, anything is possible.
