9781332087440: The Boys' Book of Scouts (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Boys' Book of Scouts

As every boy knows, this great country of ours was in the beginning a very little country, occupying a narrow strip of land along the Atlantic Coast. The vast ocean washed against it, and across this ocean brave men, heroic, intrepid, and adventurous, had come, braving its perils, and had founded their little colonies along its wild, rugged shore.

These men were explorers - water scouts, they might be called - and their lives and deeds were marvels of prowess and adventure.

But beyond this narrow strip of land lay another wilderness, mysterious and unexplored, and as dark and perilous and trackless as the wild ocean to the eastward. The thirteen colonies, and later the little republic, lay between these two vast silent wastes; and men soon found that of the two the watery one was the easier to explore.

At least, it was not so difficult to estimate its perils. There were storms and there were pirates; but at least there were no unknown savages, no wild beasts, no frowning mountains, or barren, wind-swept plains - no scorching sands.
