John Muir of Wall Street: A Story of Thrift

Book Description1927. America's familiarity with stories of men of humble origin who have won success, is such as to foster an easy indifference. Individuals made the history of our country, individuals who led groups. This story is but a bright thread in the tapestry of the history of the Northwest. In one life generalization ceases and the particulars which make history personal and vivid are preeminent. Hence, biographies. Perhaps this story may be a stimulus, a signpost on the way all travel. If one little Canadian boy reads the message of the somber pines, others may read and run the race.
