"Boy's Life" Archives Answered


I most remember "scouts in action" these were cautionary tales, as well as how to get yourself or a stranger out of a tight spot. They seem to be about page 45 to 65. Common topics: "trapped in quicksand" or " when the cave collapsed" or "the chemistry set explosive went off in his hand!!"

But there was so much more, like how to make stuff with sticks, rope and knots.

So much of my kidhood was howto based on scout stuff.

I'm tryin to figure out how to paste  pics from the mag at the above link.
