BOY SCOUT HANDBOOK is the official handbook of Scouts BSA. It is a descendant of Baden-Powell’s original handbook, Scouting for Boys, which has been the basis for Scout handbooks in many countries, with some variations to the text of the book depending on each country’s codes and customs. The handbook introduces the Scout Oath, The Scout Motto, The Scout Law, and the Scout Slogan. The original edition of the handbook was based on Baden-Powell’s work. Ernest Thompson Seton combined his Woodcraft manual, the Birch Bark Rolls, with Baden-Powell’s Scouting for Boys. Subsequent works were done by other authors. WILLIAM “GREEN BAR BILL” HILLCOURT WROTE THE 6TH, 7TH, AND 9TH EDITIONS. Frederick L. Hines wrote the 8th, and Robert Birkby the 10th, 11th and 12th editions. The cover for the 6th Edition was the third that was painted by NORMAN ROCKWELL, who began his career with Boys’ Life.
