Published with the Approval of the Boy Scouts of America. Fitzhugh was a popular writer of children's books, producing 70 titles for his publisher including five series featuring Roy Blakeley, Pee-wee Harris, and Hervey Willetts, who all appear in this particular volume. A boys' adventure book celebrating the skills that lads acquired as scouts, it features a tale where the boys get lost on a trail and have to find their way back to camp. Adventure ensues! A fantastic example of books for boys published in the early 20th century, portraying the sort of adventurous spirit by which the country sought to define itself.
