The author of Baden-Powell wrote this book with the "encouragement" of the Committee of the Council of the Boy Scouts Association, and with two purposes in mind: to provide a history of scouting at its forty-year mark, and "to explain to all interested in the education and training of boys the principles and methods on which Baden-Powell based his work."
