About this title


Rocks in My Backpack is a great Scouting adventure. With wit and inspiration, Tom Sholes recounts his entry into Boy Scouting as a youth during World War II and the great Scouting escapades that unfolded in that era of small-town American. He reveals how a decade later a young, inexperienced Scoutmaster, ‚*oeambushed‚*? into the leading troops in Minnesota and later in Colorado, grew in skills and knowledge to eventually become a highly successful leader of youth. Unsatisfied with easy merit badges and ‚*oecheap‚*? Eagle Scouts, Tom challenged his Scouts and Explorers with rugged mountains, wild rivers, and unforgiving deserts. A master storyteller, Tom recounts troop mishaps and adventures from foaming whitewater and uncovering ancient Indian ruins, to quiet moments of wonder on mountain summits. Share the ride as the young Scoutmaster matures and discovers the secrets to motivating boys and girls to levels of greater achievement and appreciation of the wilderness. Tom‚*(TM)s motto, Responsibility is the price of freedom, helped mold young men and women into free-thinking individuals who love life, respect others, value the great outdoors, overcome enormous challenges, appreciate other cultures, and cherish freedom. A companion website,, complements the stories with hundreds of action-packed photos.
