"A scout must always be prepared at any moment to do his duty, and to face danger in order to help his fellow-men." A startling amalgam of Zulu war-cry and imperial and urban myth, of borrowed tips on health and hygiene, and object lessons in woodcraft, Robert Baden-Powell's Scouting for Boys (1908) is the original blueprint and 'self-instructor' of the Boy Scout Movement. One of the all-time bestsellers in the English-speaking world, this primer of 'yarns and pictures' constitutes probably the most influential manual for youth ever published. Yet the book is at the same time a roughly composed hodge-podge of jingoist lore and tracker legend, padded with lengthy quotations from adventure fiction and Baden-Powell's own autobiography, and seamed through with the multiple anxieties of its time: fears of degeneration, concerns about masculinity and self-restraint, and invasion paranoia. Elleke Boehmer's edition of Scouting for Boys reprints the original text and illustrations, and her fine introduction investigates a book that has been cited as an authority by militarists and pacifists, capitalists and environmentalists alike.

In 1899 while serving in the 2nd Boer War, Robert Baden-Powell penned his sixth military book, Aids To Scouting. It was a non-typical training manual filled with personal stories of intrigue and even games. Its goal was to encourage the development of light reconnaissance scouting skills within the British Army. The book was well received by various armies of its time, including the French Army. His successful defense of Mafeking (1899-1900) in South Africa made Baden-Powell a well-known national hero in Britain. But what completely surprised Baden-Powell was that his book was eagerly taken up by teachers and youth groups to help organize outdoor activities and sport. He eventually embraced the idea of adapting his work into a new youth-oriented book, Scouting for Boys (1908) which went on to sell approx. 150 million copies to date. It was that follow-on book that firmly launched the international Boy Scouts movement. Aids to Scouting contains sections on the characters of a scout, as well as practical advice on observation, stealth/camouflage, map reading, sketching, tracking, reporting and care of horses. It presents these topics is a simple conversational style that makes it easy to read, and is illustrated with personal anecdotes of military adventures by the author. It gives scholars clear insights into his mindset and beliefs that served him well in the siege of Mafeking and shows a clear lineage to the formation of the tenets of his formation of the Boy Scouts. Anyone interested in the history of Boy Scouting will definitely want to read this interesting and formative book. (NOTE - Appendix C contents is missing in this Kindle version - but we hope to update the ebook with it once a suitable facsimile can be referenced).

Please note This is NOT the current edition of the BSA Handbook. It is a reprint of an historical edition of the BSA Handbook. For the first time, we are pleased to present this facsimile copy of the 1910 Original Edition of the Boy Scouts of America Official Handbook! Written primarily by Ernest Thompson Seton, with sections added from Lieutenant General Sir Robert Baden-Powell's "Scouting for Boys" and "Aids to Scouting." The 1910 Original Edition is a milestone in the history of the Boy Scouts of America. Published only from July 1910 to March 1911, this short-lived BSA Handbook was cobbled together using material from Seton's earlier work "The Birch Bark Roll" and then fused with Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts concept. Always meant as a temporary handbook until a proper one could be written and published, the 1910 Original Edition is super interesting and contains a wealth of woodsman's lore and military scouting techniques and training which do not appear in later editions of the BSA Handbooks. Many expertss consider this book to be quite a useful backwoods survival manual, and it definitely has appeal to the modern "classic camping" movement. The content of this edition is presented exactly as per the original, with the same page count, illustrations and table of contents. It's the original text exactly as it was presented in 1910 without some modern "expert" analysis or introduction. Today's reader can make up their own mind by actually reading the book. A perfect gift for the classic camping enthusiast, old Eagle Scout or the young Indiana Jones in your life. With all original illustrations, this new paperback replica edition brings this exceptionally rare book to a 21st Century audience.
