Special Collections: Horatio Alger and the Myth of Pulling Yourself Up by Your Bootstraps (ONLINE) Online
In the years after the Civil War, Horatio Alger became a wildly popular author of boys' books. With titles like Strive and Succeed, Risen from the Ranks, and The Odds Against Him, Alger's 100+ novels deeply embedded the idea of "pulling yourself up by your own bootstraps" into the American consciousness.
