Book Two of the Series is the second volume of a twelve-book series by this author, and finds the boys of the Beaver Patrol of Beverly, Indiana, as they boys continue to build and grow their patrol.
Big Rock Publishing presents the Centennial Edition of The Boy Scout Series, originally published in 1913, and written by Maj. Archibald Lee Fletcher. This edition features a foreword written by P. Todd Kelly, noted Scouting historian and Ron Stacey, Editor. In the foreword,
Kelly and Stacey point out some similarities and quite a few differences between America in 1913 and talk about the general state of affairs in the nation and the world at large. Readers also will learn a great deal about how Scouting differed in its early days from the movement it became over the past one hundred years.
The foreword itself provides a history lesson in its own right, but when paired with the beautiful prose of Fletcher (whom the reader will learn was really a pseudonym for St. George Rathborne) and the depth of characterizations presented, this work becomes a telling snapshot of life in the early part of the 20th century.
Book Two of the Series is the second volume of a twelve-book series by this author, and finds the boys of the Beaver Patrol of Beverly, Indiana, as they boys continue to build and grow their patrol. Surely, they face many obstacles. They have proven themselves to be worthy of the Scout Badge with their heroic exploits, as told in Book One of this series, but there are still many townspeople ready to view them in a skeptical light. In this book, the boys once again must face off against their rivals in the Wildcat patrol, a gang of rough boys that try to compete with (and sabotage) the Beverly Boy Scouts in every possible way, though their group is not approved by BSA Headquarters. This is also the book in which the peaceful Quaker boy, Jotham, shows his courage in a climactic final face off against the most dangerous of early 20th century foes.
See what adventures ensue for the boys of the Beaver Patrol of Beverly, Indiana: Andy, the ‘hot-blooded Southern lad’; the timorous tenderfoot Babe; Seth, a jokester who can switch to fighting mode at a moment’s notice; the peaceful yet deeply valiant Quaker boy Jotham; Fritz, the gifted tracker and ambitious second in command; Eben, the struggling bugler; the roly-poly and heavily-accented German boy Noodles; and of course, Paul, the courageous and almost superhuman Patrol Leader.
