Synopsis:

The Boy's Book of Signs and Symbols is a facsimile reproduction of c. 1920 guide to over 500 signs and symbols.  It includes signs of the zodiac, ancient and totemic signs, alphabet and arithmetic signs, trail signs, and much more. The author, White Fox (a.k.a. John Hargrave), dedicates his work to the mysterious Little Elk (medicine man to the northern clans) and tells him that his work stands for that which a mechanical and industrially frantic commercialism has all but wiped out. He also reminds Little Elk that Even now you shall find the boy as primitive as ever. White Elk wrote these words from his Caravan Camp in 1920, and they are as true now as they were when White Fox collected and illustrated this rich assembly of signs both ancient and modern. The desire to carve arcane symbols into canoe paddles may not be as relevant today as in 1920, but the symbols in this book remain fascinating.
