An original radio play by Robert Tallman written especially for the Cavalcade of America. Horatio Alger struck an authentically American note in popular fiction, and to millions of youthful readers in this country his writing represented a fundamental trait in American character. The will to succeed. Such is the substance of over 100 books which have thrilled the young men of America for generations. Little did the boys who read them know, that the man who wrote them had his own trials and triumphs.
