This come from the scout-l mailing list and was titled "Interesting readings #422". It is a chunk of text regarding Baden Powell.Before founding the scouting movement, Baden-Powell was most famous for writing a book about wild-boar hunting (also known as "pig-sticking"). But his views on outdoor education were closely tied to his concerns about "the moral tone of our race." In Scouting, he stated that "one aim of the Boy Scouts scheme is to revive...[More]
