Starting A Legacy For Millions of Scouts

Enjoy this unabridged, high-quality Doublebit Legacy reprint of The Boy Scouts Original 1910 Handbook, which was the first temporary version of the Scout Handbook written by Ernest Thompson Seton for the Boy Scouts in the first year that the organization was founded.

At the birth of Scouting in America, there were two similar, but entirely different official handbooks that were published around the same time. The present book is the very first American scout manual, published in 1910 by Ernest Thompson Seton (the Original Edition Boy Scout Handbook). One year later in 1911, the Boy Scouts National Council approved the publication of an entirely different official handbook with all new content, the First Edition Boy Scout Handbook, with no official single author. This is one case in which the words "original" and "first" do not mean the same thing

This Original 1910 Handbook provides instruction on boy scout badges, tests, and activities as suggested by Seton from BP's Scouting for Boys book, but were not yet official with the organization. Additionally, the book provided instruction on Seton's primary interests in camping and outdoors skills, first aid, swimming, nature lore, animal tracking and identification, archery, fire starting, cooking, citizenship, and patriotism.

See the scouting principles and ideals as they were published at the birth of the organization in 1910 Although the times have changed and some of the material has become outdated since its publication, see how boy scouts were instrumental in early 1900s history and how they pushed forward with determination and great skill.

This book makes a perfect gift for Eagle Scouts and scout leaders or scout masters Being full of classic outdoors skills and information, it is also a great book for outdoorspeople, campers, backpackers, bushcrafters, and outdoors historians.
