Description

The Cash Boy," by Horatio Alger, J. as the name implies, is a storyabout a boy and for boys. Through some conspiracy, the hero of the story when a baby, was takenfrom his relatives and given into the care of a kind woman.

The Cash Boy," by Horatio Alger, J. Not knowing his name, she gave him her husband's name, Frank Fowler. She had one little daughter, Grace, and showing no partiality in thetreatment of her children, Frank never suspected that she was not hissister.

Horatio Alger Jr. The Cash Boy. Read. One fee. Stacks of books. published about 100 poems and odes, most written by 1875. In 1853–54, he published short stories with Gleason's Pictorial Drawing-Room Companion and The Flag of Our Nation. Other Gleason publications printed about 100 stories before he began writing for Student and Schoolmate. Alger had many publishers over the decades. His first was A. K.

I'd heard of Horatio Alger Jr. growing up but never read his books. The fly leaf has a handwritten note: "Robby, Christmas 1890".

This book wraps the reality of lives in an inspirational tale of hard work and pluck. Success wasn't becoming a millionaire, it was getting a steady job with prospects for advancement. In Frank's Campaign, a boy goes on a pretty uneventful but somehow adventurous trip to the farm to help out, even though he's unskilled in farm work. This book was digitized and reprinted from the collections of the University of California Libraries. It was produced from digital images created through the libraries’ mass digitization efforts. The digital images were cleaned and prepared for printing through automated processes.

Written more for the younger reader, this is a story of continuing optimism in the face of constant trouble. Of course, everything turns out fine in the end the moral is that hard work and doing a good job is the way to succeed in life. This is the sort of book I devoured as a child, but for some reason, I never read Horatio Alger. I am glad I took the time to find out what I was missing. It was a pleasant story and one with the "happily ever after" ending.

Mediocre read but wanted to see what Horatio Alger was like as a 19th century author. Glad to own this book.

I have been reading Horatio Alger Jr.'s books for the last 65 years and it is enjoyable reading without too much thinking.

Horatio Alger books, these are novels that are appealing to those who read think and grow rich, and any other older money making books powerful `rags to riches stories'

These wonderful stories are so powerful today in this economic climate. Back when they were written, there were no stimulus packages, no welfare as we know it, no food stamps, no income tax! Yet, today there is still such despair, that I feel it's very much the same....
So having said that, this book is great for two reasons:

1) its shows a method and mindset for success! It's not just a story, but the story explains the thinking and mindset of the hero who overcomes terrible odds to find success. The mindset explained is as powerful then as it is today.

2) while the story is fiction, the hero figures out a way to succeed - it of course depends on factor 1 above, his mindset, but, once we see how his mind works, he thinks of a plan to become successful - and what I like is the principles that are used are not like typical fiction, but of ways and means that anyone could use to become successful, good business ideas that are still on target for today!

This book is great for readers of any age, young or old, as long as you need a lift, and you want something powerful and good in your life, you will enjoy this great work by Alger!

This review is not for the cynics and others who hate America, (whether they live here or not): There are many of us who still believe in the 'American Dream'. Who see in America as a land of opportunity, where a person may make what he wants of himself. This is the reason for the success of movies like the Secret, and books like Think and Grow Rich. Haters of this concept don't believe in the philosophy of 'if it's to be; it's up to me' and personal growth- they believe in the 'it's not my responsibility to be successful, it's the governments, or a union, etc' to make things right. For those of us who DO believe in America and what it stands for, we need to relax from time to time, from our dedicated path to success. From time to time, I like to read a novel or two, to unwind, but there are so few are positive, uplifting, and compelling novels that also promote personal growth and success principles. So finding one or two is GREAT NEWS! However I have made a wonderful discover of a new and magnificently published selection of Horatio Alger books, so now we don't just have one or two, but many, many hours ahead of us to relax, recharge and at the same time instill in ourselves the success principles we all know and love!

The Cash Boy is about a teenage boy who is was taken from his relatives and given into the care of a kind woman. A story that is moving and powerful - one of Alger's best rags to riches stories and first time I've see it in print. Lots of exciting plot twists - very rich storytelling here to illustrate the path to success - education, freedom, action and daring. This is also a wonderful book to give a young person, what a gift it would be to have this type of book so early in life! Great plot and a fantastic read!

I bought this to give away to a friends daughter - a YA - (Young Adult) - who I thought might read it and then laugh at it as being old, out of touch, silly, etc. I had hoped for at least a positive response, so I was very happy to find she came to me, and asked so many questions about business, the economy, getting a website, etc, all because she decided she wanted to begin a business due to reading The Cash Boy.

I helped her with some ideas, and also read the book myself, and I can tell you, I understand the effect the book has on people. If you have been in business, you will understand what I am about to say: remember the start up times, when it was hard, and you felt each business deal, each decision, etc? Those we call 'the good days' before it gets really going, but at the same time you are very excited and motivated?

Well that is the feeling Alger captures and gives you, and it inspires you to do something or re-connect to your business.

Its wonderful and I am going to read more of his! Truly, without being over the top, if every American read one of these books, the recession would end, and we would be back on top in the world! Leading the way as we have before.

We have lost touch with this feeling of success, its so sad we now look only to the government for leadership, when before we looked in the mirror.

If you have ever felt down, or low, or that you will never move forward get yourself a couple of these powerful books!

Each of his many wonderful and captivating stories involves Alger's main character achieving extreme wealth and the eventual elimination of their "old ghosts" or enemies. While Alger is noted as a significant figure in the history of American cultural and social ideals is message still needs to be heard more today, in our present economic situation.

In my opinion, these books of Alger's are better today than back when first written! His powerful and inspirational works have been described as rags to riches stories, illustrating how down-and-outs, poor or broke men and women, even kids, can achieve the American Dream of wealth and success through hard work, courage, determination, enterprise and concern for others.
