It is a beautiful large-format book with 240 pages of color illustrations and information on how Scouting started in England, came to the US, and started in the present Hawk Mountain Council in 1908. Over 100 people contributed thousands of stories and pictures for the book. It has chapters on our camps, Kittatinny Lodge, Wolf's Lair, Wood Badge, training, jamborees, Philmont, awards, etc. The names of over 5,000 Hawk Mountain Council Eagle Scouts are listed in the book.
In the Forward, the late Senator Michael O'Pake stated:
"This book is ... a remarkable achievement. Everyone who has invested their time, talent, and energy in making it a reality deserves special thanks and congratulations for all of their hard work. For those who have been involved with Scouting, this work will provide hours of enjoyment and become a treasured keepsake. And for those who are not too familiar with Scouting, this book will provide both a historical record of Scouting's import and impact in our region and serve as a catalyst for them to support the movement. So I encourage everyone to enjoy this remarkable historical text and share it with your friends and neighbors; it is sure to become a favorite for them."
Steve Henning is the editor of the book and is available to give presentations on the book to service clubs and to Scout meetings where adults are present. He can be contacted at .
