THE OUTDOOR BOOK FOR ADVENTUROUS BOYS: Over 200 Essential Skills and Activities for Boys of All Ages                                                            (Lyons)

Adrian Besley

 

 

A family activity guide like no other

 

 

This illustrated book teaches outdoor skills to boys (and girls, too!) who have no idea how much fun they will find away from the Internet and television. Knot-tying, raft-building, kite-making, stick-building, fishing tips, and “secrets tricks” are just some of the skills for the outdoors that many boys have never learned. Featuring charmingly “retro” two-color illustrations throughout, this new book teaches useful skills as well as outdoor games, and it will also remind parents of the things they loved to do when they were young. 

 

Adrian Besley lives in the UK.

 

Synopsis:

This fun, retro mixture of useful outdoor skills, recreational activities, and "forbidden knowledge" that will be enjoyable for children while reminding adults of a simpler time.
