Publisher's Summary

Since its first publication in 1908, Scouting for Boys has been one of the best-selling 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 audio 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Written against a background of British colonialism, Scouting for Boys is both a fascinating historical document and a valuable guidebook for the modern scout.

    "Be Prepared..."

    ...for a real period piece, exceptionally well read. At times, it's difficult to believe in our enlightened times that some of it isn't tongue-in-cheek. But of course it's not. It would be so easy for Hugh Dennis to make it sound faintly ridiculous and antiquarian; however, he strikes just the right tone, not too ponderous, in no way condescending, but aware, I suspect, of its historical context and giving it due respect. Simplistic it may be to our modern sensitivities and sophistication, but not borne of naivete. And, dare I say it, a reminder of pioneering spirit!
