Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As timely as it is timeless, this instructive book has captured the interest and imagination of boys for well over a century. Chapters on kite flying and fishing, rigging and sailing small boats, camping out without a tent, knot-tying for mountain climbing and other activities, as well as training dogs, raising wild birds, and other projects will appeal as much to today's youngsters as they did to children in the late 1800s. Many of these enterprises have also been known to compete effectively with TV and video games. Best of all, the projects have the power to inspire the imagination and help youngsters master new skills and experience the satisfaction of personal accomplishment.

Synopsis:

Used by generations of Boy Scouts, this classic features scores of projects — from stocking aquariums and performing puppet shows to sculpting snowmen and making sleds. Includes chapters on kite flying, fishing, rigging and sailing small boats, camping out without a tent, and much else. 254 black-and-white figures. 63 illustrations.
