'very good fun' (Max Hastings, Sunday Telegraph)
'Elleke Boehmer's erudite introduction makes you wish she would get around to writing a full-length biogaphy of the first Chief Scout' (William Cook, New Statesman)
'a gem of a contemporary source' --(Living History)
'the value of Elleke Boehmer's well-annotated text of the original edition is to show us the anxieties, contradictions and excitements of the Boy Scout movement at its inception' (Alan Hollinghurst, Guardian) Ransome was 24 when Robert Baden-Powell s handbook of good citizenship , Scouting for Boys, was published in 1908, and too much of a maverick to have made a good scout. But the information it offers on setting up camp, first aid, woodcraft and tracking, based on Baden-Powell's experiences in India and Africa and Ernest Thompson Seton's book on native American woodcraft, The Birch-Bark Roll, would have fascinated him. He would also have approved of the code of upright behaviour it spelt out. Wisely pruned of the text s worst imperial sentiments, and narrated without tongue in cheek by Mock the Week's Hugh Dennis, it makes lively listening for young and old lovers of outdoor adventure. --The Times
'a gripping read' --(The Oldie)
