Horatio Alger Jr. was a prolific 19th-century American author of boy’s adventure stories whose heroes strive to succeed through hard work, determination, courage, and honesty. “Farm to Fortune; or, Nat Nason's Strange Experience” is a novel first published in 1905. The story tells about Nat Nason, a poor country boy with a strong desire to better his condition. Life on the farm is unusually hard for him, and after a quarrel with his miserly uncle, with whom he resides, he resolves to strike out for himself. Together with other Alger’s novels, “From Farm to Fortune” intended to instill the principle of Strive and Succeed, Personal Growth and Achievement to attain the American dream.
