Notes & Reviews:
Tracking, woodcraft, camping, chivalry and fortitude: Scouting for Boys: A Handbook for Instruction in Good Citizenship is the original Boy Scout manual. This value-laden how-to book teaches confidence, self-reliance, and teamwork to the young adventurer, with the aim of building them into a representable member of society. Now largely forgotten, it is the fourth best-selling book of the 20th century, after the Bible, the Koran and Mao's Red Book, and has been translated into 87 different languages worldwide. Its charm and spirit will delight the listener in this new reading by the comedian Hugh Dennis.
