We love receiving books as gifts maybe me more than him and this was a fun book we read through together. He, of course, thought it was very old-fashioned and is probably not going to be making homemade boats or elder guns but I thought it was fascinating that fathers and sons could or did bond like this. My husband is not a maker of sorts. He gets annoyed very quickly and doesn't have this sort of patience but I do This was a gift for my 9 yr old boy on his birthday from my very great friend.

He gets annoyed very quickly and doesn't have this sort of patience but I don't know if my son would want to make anything. He is a very athletic boy and very competitive with everyone even himself so if he made a mistake he would probably be angry and try to quit.
We are not quitters here! It seems like such a fun, simple time. Learning TO DO things even if one never does this instead of all this in your face technology as I use my computer..
When you had respect for adults and your parents MADE you respect others and kids actually socialized and learned how to behave on instinct I'm getting nostalgia on getting whacked with a belt and being scared of my parents.. So if making highly poisonous taxidermy or preserving fish is your thing this book might be handy. Overall fun to read. Fascinating stuff. Has anyone from the older generation ever done this stuff when they were young during camping or with their fathers? View all 4 comments. Jenna Agree.

Sep 17, PM. Karina Thanks Jenna. You must be normal.. I wouldn't recommending gifting this to a child as a practical guide for outdoor fun. Some of the suggestions are downright terrifying by modern standards Arsenic paint in your child's bedroom taxidermy projects?
Homemade fireworks for kids? Sounds like fun! This book also has a fair bit of racist and sexist language. However, as a piece of American history, it's fascinating.
I read this because of its link to my dissertation research. Daniel Carter Beard formed the "Sons of Daniel Boone" in I wouldn't recommending gifting this to a child as a practical guide for outdoor fun. He was then involved with BSA for the rest of his life. His sister was also an early organizer of Camp Fire Girls. This book is a captivating glimpse into the world that Beard inhabited and imagined.
It's also inspiring. If boys years ago could build canoes and forts and sailboats out of pieces of scrap leather and gathered logs, I really should figure be able to fix my wobbly couch leg. Written by the founder of the Boy Scouts of America, this book is a fun read and still usable today. Fun stuff in this book for either gender! Great guide to older skills.

What to do and how to do it; the American boys handy book
Jul 06, David MacLean rated it it was amazing. Very interesting only problem was not all of the supplies are easy to find if you don't live by the ocean. It includes directions for knots, kite building, camping without a tent, and how to build a snow fort, just to name a few.
The book was originally published in and is filled with black and white drawings. Especially is this true of summer sports, many of which are nautical, or in some manner connected with the water. He was born in and lived until He received the only Golden Eagle badge awarded by the Boy Scouts. He believed in allowing boys to create their own toys and he loved the outdoors. There is a mountain peak in Alaska named for him. So much more dangerous than that other book, written in the s by a founder of the Boy Scouts. War kites, raise your own hawk, practical taxidermy for boys, whipbows, how to make your own blowgun, magic lanterns, DIY shadowpuppetry, and more.

Already gave to a friend and his son who live in rural Tennessee. Will happily give to age appropriate girls as well. Interestingly enough, the Girls' Handy Book from the same time is lame-o while the Daring Book for Girls far outstri So much more dangerous than that other book, written in the s by a founder of the Boy Scouts. Mar 17, Mary rated it really liked it. I had three boys and before that three sisters, what did I know of being a boy or what to do with boys - thank goodness for books like this.
Not only did it help me with activities to do with my boys it also gave me a feel of how boys think. This was also an invaluable tool that I used as a cub scout parent. Apr 15, Philip rated it it was amazing. The most awesome book of my childhood. I'll never forget the day when my parents gave me this book.
This is the rite of passage for any little guy who wants to entertain himself in the great outdoors! This was my son's favorite book when he was a child, so I had to get a copy for his son. Challenges children and adults! One of the best books ever to get them away from the television and video games and out! Dec 15, Abigail Andrew rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Anyone interested in old time projects. It's a great book for learning what was expected of boys in the late s.
There's lots of crafts and and outdoor projects that can still be done if you live in a wooded area, and detailed drawings and instructions. And you need to see, as Historians or History enthusiasts the scope of activities that are covered. Carter really provides, in my opinion, a look into both indoor and outdoor activities of the times.
These are the activities that the boys and men going into Civil War would have known about.
