Acres of Diamonds
by Russell H. Conwell
Publisher: Harper & Brothers 1915
Number of pages: 214
The central idea of the work is that one need not look elsewhere for opportunity, achievement, or fortune -- the resources to achieve all good things are present in one's own community. This theme is developed by an introductory anecdote, told to Conwell by an Arab guide, about a man who wanted to find diamonds so badly that he sold his property and went off in futile search for them.
