The American Boy's Handy Book by Daniel C. Beard

Long before "danger" was a book for boys, there was The American Boy's Handy Book by Daniel Beard—a beloved classic by one of the original founders of the Boy Scouts of America. The American Boy's Handy Book was designed to provide hundreds of activities for restless young boys—adventures and games, indoors and out, in every season of the year. It was originally published in 1882 and became an instant bestseller.

Now, this much-loved classic is back in print for a new generation to enjoy. If you're not too young to fly a kite, or too old to enjoy a day of good fishing, The American Boy's Handy Book is chock full of games and activities just for you! There's something for boys of every age and for every day of the year in this book:

  • Building and flying your own kite
  • Making an aquarium
  • Rigging and sailing small boats
  • Camping without a tent
  • Making a corn stalk fiddle
Daniel Beard, a founding member of the Boy Scouts of America, firmly believed in letting boys make their own playthings with their hands, to encourage them to value their own work and gain skills needed to successfully invent, construct and dream.
