Praise
"A sweet-hearted account of the author's adventures, as well as a reasoned critique of institutional shortcomings."
"[Applebome] conveys his experiences with a delightfully self-deprecating humor....giving a balanced and informed account."
From the Publisher
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.
Editors Note 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.
