Comment List (Total:13)
- The book highlights basic boy stuff -- ranging from hiking and hunting to fishing to cowboys to jokes about girls to how to ask girls out to how to be manly and everything in between.10/10 book. I loved it.
- Thought it would be toured towards a how to or find new things to do... Seems it is more of a story about some of this guys camping with his son or grandson.
- This is a bit of a throwback book. The kids found it a bit difficult to "get into". Think of it as an guide for fun on Walton's Mountain or at the Little House on the Prairie. As a father I enjoyed the topics even if they all don't apply to experiences we might have.
- I think little boys will love this book. It has a lot of stuff that little boys should know and hopefully reading about some of it will inspire them to get outside and test some...
- great book, had a lot of good info in general from knots to fires and trail signs to signal fires
- my step-son cannot put this book down and he uses it for scouts all the time.
- I have a girlie girl who also enjoys shooting, camping and the outdoors. She is twelve and shoots trap with her pink shotgun. So, gals, take a peek. This book may be a book for you too. I would hate for this book to be limited by its title. If you are a girl, the first chapter is about the author and his son and boyhood and how the book came about. She said it reminded her of her and her dad and the closeness that she has with him. She thought that chapter pertained to her too, just not the boyhood part. After that chapter, the meaty part of the book starts and it has valuable information. My daughter says that she just inserts "everybody" when the book says, "every boy". This book is a good outdoor and survival book for everyone. Enjoy.

If you're putting together a some stories for a Kindle you're giving as a gift to a boy, this would be a fine book to add.
- A collection of activities for boys (or girls) of any age to explore the world around them in a prepared manner. Has illustrations for some of the activities. A good book for those who want a taste of what childhood was like back in the fifties and early sixties.
- I thought this book would be stories of adventures, not how-to's. (I must not have read the description enough). I look forward to testing these things out when my son gets older.
- I have just started reading this and I am enjoying the neck out of it. I would recommend to anyone with kids.
