Over Thanksgiving while visiting my family I came across my father’s old Boy Scouts of America Handbook, The Handbook for Boys. My father bought the book new in 1950 and it would guide him and serve him well through his time as a Boy Scout until he was an Eagle Scout. The book if filled with all the necessary knowledge a young man should know, everything from how to tie knots to first aid. Here are some of my favorite pages from Scouting skills chapter of the book, the rest can be seen here.
