Charlie Whistler's Omnium Gatherum: Campfire Stories and Adirondack Adventures by Philip Delves Broughton

In the tradition of The Dangerous Book for Boys, a visually dazzling compendium of practical knowledge, fascinating trivia, and worldly wisdom for young boys??"designed as a charming and informal full-color family scrapbook treasured by generations of one family at their Adirondack summer camp.

On a late summer afternoon, while rustling around in his family??s Adirondack cabin, a boy named Charlie Whistler finds a dusty cloth-bound scrapbook. It is the Omnium Gatherum, a colorful, illustrated grab bag of stories, arcana, and much more, faithfully collected over generations by Charlie??s father, grandfather, and generations of Whistlers before them.

Its pages hold a universe of age-old wisdom, from the simple??"how to tie a slipknot??"to the esoteric??"how to find your way in the forest, or predict the tides??"to the exotic??"how to understand simple phrases in dozens of languages.

Charlie Whistler??s Omnium Gatherum is a delightful, ceaselessly readable, and unique gift book for boys of all ages: a nostalgic evocation of American childhood, a keepsake for modern fathers to hand down to their sons, and an irresistible, page-turning read for everyone who loves to lose themselves in the world of imagination.
