Product description Review "The capacity of the small human male to prevail in the face of adversity is grossly underestimated in today's society.
It seems to me the solution to most of our ills is simply to let him go outside to run around a bit more. The American Boy's Handy Book will show you how to do it properly.
He published this book in , and its greatest benefit is to show us how much more effort and ingenuity was expected of boys back in the 19th century than is expected today. There are projects for every season, ranging from making a whirligig to making and sailing a boat. Hunting with blowguns, homemade crossbows and other improvised arms is covered, as is practical taxidermy for the trophies collected.
To read this book is to realize what has been lost in years. See all Product description.

Verified Purchase. This is a really cool book for boys I do suggest trying to get a copy of the original hardcover book because the paperback copy is poorly organized however, with the paperback you do get to download the digital version which is useful also.
I was giving this as a gift and I found it embarrassing to give such a poorly organized book with an index that didn't match I ended up getting both of them as I found the information rather valuable in today's electronic world, lets learn these skills so that they are never lost.
One person found this helpful. When I was about , and on into my early teens, I checked one book out of our public library more than any other. That book was "andy boo for boys," at least that is what showed on the cover. The book was very warn and the cover had been taped with black binding tape. In so doing the first and last letters of two words were covered.
The book was "Handy Book for Boys. So I bought my brother a copy, as well as one for myself. When the book arrived at my brother's house, the grandsons immediate confiscated it and began to devour its contents. As author Beard puts it, ''It is very seldom that pigs are sculptured in marble or cast in bronze, and it would be well to make some of snow, so as to have statues not likely to be found elsewhere.

They're all possible according to this book. Written before the current age of safety consciousness regarding toys and games, Daniel Beard who, incidentally, was one of the founding fathers of the Boy Scouts has included activities that modern parents might deem hazardous without supervision Fourth of July balloons and gas soap bubbles being two examples. There are also sections on guns, as well as hunting, trapping, and taxidermy, that some may find objectionable. But by and large, this is a fascinating compendium of useful knowledge, giving both a glimpse of the past and activity ideas for the present.
