Publishers Description
Over 31 million copies of the Official Handbook for Boys have been distributed since this first edition was published in 1911. The original Boy Scout Handbook standardized American scouting and emphasized the virtues and qualifications for scouting, delineating what the American Boy Scouts declared was needed to be a ""well-developed, well-informed boy."" The book includes information on the organization of scouting, signs and signaling, camping, scouting games, and a description of several scouting honors. Scouts past and present will be fascinated to see how scouting has changed in the ensuing years, and how it has stayed the same.

More About Boy Scouts of America

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! From the preface: The Boy Scouts of America is a corporation formed by a group of men who are anxious that the boys of America should come under the influence of this movement and be built up in all that goes to make character and good citizenship.
In order that the work of the boy scouts throughout America may be uniform and intelligent, the National Council has prepared its "Official Handbook," the purpose of which is to furnish to the patrols of the boy scouts advice in practical methods, as well as inspiring information."

Boy scout book  Jan 7, 2008
An old boy scout boy with stuff in it that the new ones don't have.
Wonderful to read.
This is the book to get for Survival  Dec 25, 2007
Theres a lot of books written out there from SAS UK soldiers to the new tech Boy Scout manual.

But, this is the one to get.

It will keep you alive with the bare minumum, no high tech things, no GPS, no down sleeping bag that weighs 2.5#, no batteries, no gas stove, no matches, NOTHING. They didn't have that back then.

You will rely on yourself, no modern gadgets. & become a man (or woman) in the process, & develop morals, & know USA history quite well.

History includes: did the USA purchase the SW USA from Mexico, or did it steal the land as some would say?

Did the USA pay for it legitimately? Do you know your history?

Do you know the true answer?

This was common knowledge of USA citizens in the early 20th century. Seems USA citizens forgot it all. Read the book...

Welcome to real survival techniques. Survival is more than "living off the land".

It is knowing the truth & how to answer & defend yourself from the slings & arrows of people who want to take things that belong to you.
See the beginning for yourself!  May 12, 2006
This book is a time capsule from the beginning of the Boy Scouts in the United States. Ecology? The Boy Scouts were there in 1911. Animal rights? Ditto. Of course, the specifics in this century-old text may not match current viewpoints, but the Boy Scouts were global before Globalism became chic! I showed the ads to really old boy scouts-those who were boy scouts during the 1950's-and they were reminded of the changes.

Don't use this book as a "how to" reference without first checking carefully. The advice on first aid includes procedures known to aggravate injuries-such as rubbing snow on frostbitten areas (page 272.) The section on constructing radio communications equipment (page 210) was written prior to the establishment of the Federal Communications Commission-in addition to needing licenses to build and operate the equipment, professional Morse Code operators are rare in the United States.

Some of this book is still current, too. Page 14 starts with the Scout Oath and the explanation of the Scout Law. The section on tracking is still good.

Get a copy! It's an inexpensive artifact from the end of America's frontier days.
Second Best Seller to the Bible..Nothing Else to Say!  Jun 19, 2003
This best seller needs no explanation as to why it has sold second only to the Bible. God is first Baden Powell follows. Remember this book has been read by Presidents, heroes, scientists, teachers, etc. Why not you...
Great book  Feb 26, 2003
This book is essential for everyone...not just boyscouts or boys even, it is full of practical advice on just about everything- safty, tons of fun activities, being a good person, etc. an excellent book that keeps everyone from being 'bored' and encorages kids to make up their own fun. definatly worthwhile.
