From Wikipedia:
The origin of the term "American Dream" appears to be from a history book by James Truslow Adams entitled "The Epic of America" (1931):
"If, as I have said, the things already listed were all we had to contribute, America would have made no distinctive and unique gift to mankind. But there has been also the American dream, that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for every man, with opportunity for each according to his ability or achievement." [p. 404;...]
