The Official Boy Scout Handbook Author:William Hillcourt Basic to your experience in Scouting is your OFFICIAL BOY SCOUT HANDBOOK. Like a constant companion, it should almost become a part of you, silently providing important information and offering sound advice. — Since 1910, more than 30 million other Scouts have carried their copies on hikes and campouts and to troop meetings. Their colorful, well-... more »illustrated books have served as a ready reference for all kinds of questions about Scouting or any number of subjects: "How do you tie a bowline?" "Is that a copperhead?" "Where's the Big Dipper?" "How do you stop a nosebleed?"
When you're not at Scouting activities, the handbook is still available to explain about even more vital issues that come to mind: "What's democracy and what does it mean to be an American citizen?" "What do they mean by 'duty to God'?" "How am I going to spend the rest of my life?"
There's no book that can give complete answers to questions like these. But no other book has more good information about so many subjects that a boy wonders about than the BOY SCOUT HANDBOOK. No other book, except the Bible, can point you in the right direction. Keep it with you always.« less
