In addition to offering affectionate portraits of the motley group of boys in his sons Boy Scout troop, Applebome also laces his very funny narrative with an informal but fascinating history of Scouting and grapples with the modern-day controversies that will help determine Scoutings future. *Author: Applebome, Peter *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 330 *Publication Date: 2004/05/03 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.54 x 5.54 x 0.85 inches
From the Publisher:
A committed "indoorsman" chronicles his adventures with his son's Boy Scout troop as they head outdoors for a series of hilarious adventures hiking and camping.
Annotation:
Author Peter Applebome shares true tales of the experiences he had while accompanying his son on several Boy Scout adventures. A reluctant outdoorsman, Applebome tells of how he impressed himself by winning a Scoutmaster Challenge, but he also doesn't shy away from sharing such low points in his Scouting career as the time he snuck out of camp to watch a basketball game at a nearby bar. Through his personal anecdotes Applebome explores the history of the Boy Scouts and addresses the modern-day controversies surrounding Scouting's future.

New York Times Book Review
"[Applebome] conveys his experiences with a delightfully self-deprecating humor....giving a balanced and informed account." - Diane Scharper 06/15/2003
