Description
Originally published in 1913, this is a fascinating reproduction of the first American Girl Scout Handbook. Author W.J. Hoxie--a naturalist--included tips and tricks for provisioning a camp, tying knots, tending the injured, and telling time by the stars. In 1916, How Girls Can Help Their Country was adapted by Juliette Low into a newer version of the Girl Scout Handbook.The ranks of the American Girl Scouts have grown from the original eighteen members to the millions of members still active today. Through the decades, each Girl Scout has used some edition of the handbook to learn about everything from camping and first-aid, to "housewifery" and patriotism. Although the roles of women have changed over the years, the importance of the handbook has not. Complete with photographs and diagrams, this centennial edition serves as a reference for life in the times of the great-, great-great-, or even great-great-great-grandmothers of today's Girl Scouts.
