Boy Scouts Handbook: the First Edition, 1911 (Dover Books on Americana) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Read by presidents, scientists, and national heroes, the Boy Scouts Handbook has been used by generations of American youths. Filled with practical advice for everyone, the book contains everything from safety tips on swimming and instructions for putting up a tent to directions for making an aquarium and pointers on how to identify common North American trees.

More than 200 figures and illustrations accompany valuable information on woodcrafting, camping, sailing, hiking, health and endurance, and providing first aid. But more than just a guide to outdoor life, the handbook also offers timeless observations on politeness, patriotism, and good citizenship.

As useful and valid today as it was when first published nearly 100 years ago, the Boy Scouts Handbook will delight Americana enthusiasts as much as it will be treasured by collectors and nature lovers.

Synopsis:

Complete republication of a book that has been used by generations of American youths, with copious information on such topics as woodcrafting, camping, sailing, as well as notes on developing self-reliance and good citizenship. A delight for Americana enthusiasts, a treasure for collectors. 219 figures and illustrations.

Synopsis:

One of the most popular books of the past century, the Boy Scout Handbook has been used by generations of American youths. This complete republication of the first (1911) edition--sure to attract nostalgia buffs, former Scouts, and antiquarians--retains all the charm and flavor of the original publication. Replete with diagrams, illustrations, and period advertisements, the manual features information on tying knots, woodcrafting, identifying wildlife, overnight camping, sailing, and outdoor games. The book also includes notes on developing character, self-reliance, and good citizenship.
