Careers in the Face of Challenge COVER FRONT ONLYEdited and Introduced by Wallace Boston

The young Horatio Alger heroes often sold newspapers or delivered telegrams, a reminder of how technology has moved on.  But they hoped for better things and in the Alger novels their diligence and hard work won the day and they ended up getting the educations they deserved and the success that their exemplary morality earned. The reader will find this prototypical Alger story both a good read and food for thought in an era when the technology has indeed moved on but the challenges have remained.
