KIRKUS REVIEW

Step-by-step procedures and do's and don'ts offer practical guidance for youthful sports enthusiasts. Although the language and references are to conditions in England, some American youngsters could probably profit from the pointers given. Boating, cycling, walking, swimming, show jumping, lawn tennis, underwater swimming, Scouting- here called Guiding --photography, archery, camping, water-skiing, bird spotting, canoeing, how to make and use a map, mountain climbing and sketching are covered in both books, with helpful diagrams and photographs. Certainly the differences in sports between the two countries as well as the discrepancies in the language as it is used in the two countries, must be discounted before deciding in favor of these two books.
