Abstract:
A Centennial History tells the full, rich story of Scouting from it's original British roots to its adaptation in America, from the earliest Scout camps through the Scouts' contributions during World Wars I and II, the Depression and up to the aid they offered victims of Hurricane Katrina. In the course of telling the BSA's history, the book honors many notable Scouts who have raised its reputation to the highest heights of American consciousness.With 299 pages, this exquisite, limited edition book contains vivid and some never before seen photographs, memorabilia and removable replicas of rare documents such as the original Pinewood Derby rulebook, a World War I poster distributed by the Boy Scouts of America, and a letter to the Scouts from President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
