The Boy Scouts in a Trapper's Camp

by Thornton W. Burgess

Very interesting take on the Scouts. It's a bit overbearing on how great Scouting can be, but I really enjoyed the wilderness lore put forth. Some of the dialect (especially Irish) at first is a bit much, but thankfully it's not always used. The book is pretty informative about trapping and camping as long as you know things have changed. For instance, rubbing a frostbitten body part with snow is now a big no-no, but 80 years ago it was a common treatment.

If you're big on animal rights, you'll really cringe when they explain trapping mink and fox, but it's a wilderness novel after all. Overall, I really enjoyed it and I'll be looking for the other books in this series.
