Scouts Tests: And How to Pass Them


Scouts Tests: And How to Pass Them Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A celebratory centenary edition of the 1914 official manual on Boy Scouts badges, an authentic dangerous book for boys--young and old
The Boy Scouts Association has been in existence since 1908, offering boys and young adults more than 100 years of adventure, jamborees, summer camps, badges, scarves, and gang shows. The collection of the badges has always been the backbone of the movement, and back in 1914 a book was published that gathered together all the legendary badges and gave instruction on how to pass them. This is a celebratory edition of that 1914 classic—taking badges as diverse as woodcraft and tracking techniques to "Entertainer" and "Healthy Man"—and showing how this much-loved institution has grown and evolved. It is a fascinating historical document that also reveals the morality of an era when readers were entreated to be "clean in thought, word and deed," "refrain from spitting in omnibuses," and "get out of bed as soon as they wake up.
