Summary, etc.:
Since its first publication in 1908, Scouting for Boys has been one of the bestselling books in the English language. Subtitled A Handbook for Instruction in Good Citizenship, the book draws on a miscellany of material, including Baden-Powell's own military experiences, and is credited with giving birth to the scout movement. The text covers the topics of Scoutcraft, Tracking and Observation, Woodcraft, Camp Life and First Aid, in addition to suggesting a range of scout activities and games. Written against a background of British colonialism, Scouting for Boys is both a fascinating historical document and a valuable guidebook for the modern scout.
