Boy Scouts Handbook

Boy Scouts of America

Book Overview: 

The Boy Scouts of America was founded over a hundred years ago to serve the young men of the United States of America and give them the same opportunities that Boy Scouts all over the world were receiving. Modeled after Robert Baden-Powell's Scouting for Boys, the Boy Scouts Handbook of the Boy Scouts of America gave the original American Boy Scouts a taste of adventure, excitement, and values for them to use for the rest of their life, and is still good reading for the modern age.
