The high level of this series is sustained again in this collection of stories of scouting written by the editor of Boys' Life Magazine. Usually the stories in these books are drawn from various sources. This time Irving Crump has written the stories around the ideals of the Boy Scout Code; he has told good yarns, showing all phases of scouting; and he's managed to make his boys real and not tin gods. Camping- patrol- rescue- fire hazard- special assignments- a dog story- a bear hunt- mystery- skiing- these are adventure stories first and foremost, with scouting, its training, its discipline, its code, as secondary. There are fifteen in this series- good bridging books for the boys who aren't quite ready to go into adult reading. This particular collection is somewhat younger in age appeal than some of the others.
