Here is an outstanding collection of exciting stories, brimming with Boy Scout activities and the ideals that make scouting such a great influence in the character building of our young people.
The author, Irving Crump, a well-known writer of boys books, is the Editor of Boys’ Life Magazine published by the Boy Scouts of America. Mr. Crumps vast and long experience with Scouts and Scouting, editing and writing, makes him well qualified to judge what will interest and stimulate the Teen-Agers of today.
While most of the characters in these stories are Scouts, many are not. Each story is written to hold the interest of the young reader from the very first page, whether he be a Scout or has scouting ambitions. Each story is exciting and stimulating and deals with the experiences and adventures of modern boys and how they meet the problems that arise in every boy’s life.
Sharply contrasted throughout the book is the ability of the well-trained Scout to meet these problems and overcome his difficulties with due regard for the high principles ingrained by the Scout law.
