Young Henry earns a copy of Benjamin Franklin's biography which inspires him to leave home and begin his path to success. He learns about borrowing, interest, leverage, the value of learning, hard work and false friends. Bound to Rise is ageless: it will prepare a young person to face the challenges of today even more than it did years ago. A great story, a great lesson and a great gift! Alger wrote to instill the principle of Strive and Succeed, Personal Growth and Achievement-to attain the American dream. He inspired countless millions of young people world-wide and was the Mark Victor Hanson and Tony Robbins of his era. "Horatio Alger Jr. was the biggest American media star of his day. [when] the sale of 10,000 volumes was deemed a publishing triumph in those days-readers bought at least 200 million copies of his books, placing him in the Stephen King category"...Stefan Kanfer
