Paul Prescott's Charge. If you’ve ever used the phrase rags to riches, you owe that to Horatio Alger, Jr. (1832-1899), who popularized the idea through his fictional writings that also served as a theme for the way America viewed itself as a country. Alger’s works about poor boys rising to better living conditions through hard work, determination, courage, honesty, and morals was popular with both adults and younger readers. Alger’s writings happened to correspond with America’s Gilded Age, a time of increasing prosperity in a nation rebuilding from the Civil War.

The started very sad but quickly progressed to happiness and success. I must admit a few times I cried a little but at other times I found myself laughing out load (which annoyed my family lol) especially at the 'fun' (trolling) that Ben a side character immersed himself in
This book is a whirlwind. through the adventures of young Paul I found it super hard to set down.
I highly recommend

This is a good story, suitable for young people. Horatio Alger can be a little preachy about boys having good work habits and avoiding alcohol, tobacco, and gambling, but this book is still quite entertaining. Squeaky clean, and with a good moral. Like all his books, virtues are rewarded, and greedy villains get what are coming to them.

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!

Paul Prescott's Charge is one of the most powerful Alger books - Paul is thrown against hardship after hardship, endures pain and suffering, and never wavers. His story stands up too well to our time and his example is truly inspirational for anyone of any age. Reading it again was a moving experience and very motivating. I can understand how Alger was the Tony Robins of his time. Perhaps reading Alger books is more likely to change us for the better than buying lots of CD's and special courses - these stories moved me, and they will you too!

Horatio Alger books, these are novels that are appeal to those like me who read Think and Grow Rich, and any other older money making books they are `rags to riches stories'
My family has really gotten hooked on Alger. 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 powerful 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!

It's all Mindset!
A classic Alger story! Very good! Paul's story is the story of so many of us.

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.

2010 is the best year for Alger! Rediscover him today! One of his best books, read it and pass it on - it will only help the economy! :)

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.

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

Talk about real inspiration!
