” Fifteen popular Scout stories, carefully selected by the editor of Boy’s Life, who knows what boys everywhere like to read..”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
An obscure book called “Boy Scout Stories” (by Irving Crump) was arduous to read. In fact, maybe that’s an understatement. Here’s why…
-The racism. I’m not one to get offended by a book, but when one villain is Mexican and the others are described as “dark-skinned”, I can’t help but feel uneasy.
-The lack of personality. The protagonists are Boy Scouts who do Boy Scout-ish things; that’s all the character development you can expect.
