FOUR PERCENT: The Extraordinary Story of Exceptional American Youth (2nd Edition - NEW & ENLARGED) Reviews
Great history of Scouting in America, which had its roots in the U.K. Having Eagle Scout on your resume still carries a lot of meaning; I loved my experience in Scouting as a youth and am belatedly working to give back to the program. If you have a young man in your family, get him into Scouting -- it will change his life for the better!
Well done. Great background and history of Eagle Scouts (and BSA). This is a gift for my "new" Eagle Scout.
Excellent. Purchased this as a gift for a newly inducted Eagle Scout. Perfect gift.
So much information about BSA and the Eagle Scouts. I am widow of an Eagle Scout, mother of 2 Eagles and grandmother of 1 Eagle. This book enlightened me about how much Eagles contribute to our country.
Truly amazing youth to leader stories
Remarkable book by about a remarkable organization.
