A classic and difficult to find a new one. A perfect Eagle Scout gift.

good book

I bought this as a gift for my husband, who's been involved with the Boy Scouts in one way or another for most of his life. It's a nicely illustrated history of the Scouts in the USA. However, the author is not a particularly good writer and to me it seemed he spent far too much time gushing over the Scouts rather than providing a straightforward story. Still, for anyone who wants a good overview of the history of the BSA, it's worth buying.

An excellent, comprehensive volume. Of interest to any Scout or Scouter.
A beautifully bound book with full color images and great graphics depicting and demonstrating what the philosophy of Scouting is all about. From the BSA incarnation to modern times - this book covers the world of Boy Scouts with artwork from Rockwell and troop imagery all over the world. The historic information is wonderfully written. A great gift or coffee table book !
