The Boy Scout’s Book of Campfire Stories (1921) is a collection of stories for children by some of twentieth-century America’s most popular authors. Published for the Boy Scouts of America, the book was intended to entertain Boy Scouts and their leaders on camping trips as well as to instill in them a passion for adventure. In 'Silverhorns,' written by Henry van Dyke, an experienced hunter named Dudley Hemenway shares stories with a Scotsman while waiting for their train to depart. Over cigars, they talk about moose hunting, and describe their desire to catch the elusive silverhorn. Zane Grey’s 'The Wild-Horse Hunter,' a Western tale, begins with three hunters making camp in the wide-open wilderness. As night falls, they start a fire by a stream and recount their difficult day and their struggle to capture the legendary Wildfire. 'The Hydrophobic Skunk' is a humorous tale by Irvin S. Cobb about a rare creature said to live at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Jack London’s 'That Spot,' another story of wit and humor, follows a group of prospectors during the Klondike Gold Rush who try and fail to rid themselves of a stray dog that joins their expedition. The Boy Scout’s Book of Campfire Stories is a collection that captures the essence of storytelling--adventure, humor, horror, and wisdom--for children and adults alike. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Boy Scout’s Book of Campfire Stories is a classic of American literature reimagined for modern readers.
