In this age of video games and cell phone, there must still be a place for knots, tree houses, and stories of incredible courage. The one thing that we always say about childhood is that we seemed to have more time back then. This book will help you recapture those Sunday afternoons and long summers...because they're still long if you know how to look at them.
Boyhood is all about curiosity, and men and boys can enjoy stories of great heroism as much as they can raid a shed for the bits to make an electromagnet, or grow a crystal, build a go-cart, and learn how to find north in the dark. You'll find famous battles in these pages, insects and dinosaurs, as well as essential Shakespeare quotes, how to cut flint heads for a bow and arrow, and instructions on making the best paper airplane in the world.
Just a Few Examples of Everything a Boy Needs to Know:
• How Latitude and Longitude Work
• How to Make Secret Ink and Send the Cipher that Julius Caesar Used with his Generals
• Details from Famous Battles throughout History
• Science Experiments, Blueprints for a Treehouse, and Grammar Lessons
• True Stories of Adventure and Courage
• Ancient Wonders and Modern Inventions
• PLUS SO MUCH MORE!!
Men and boys today are the same as they always were, and interested in the same things. They may conquer different worlds when they grow up, but they'll still want these stories for themselves and for their sons. In years to come, this will be a book to dig out of the attic and give to a couple of kids staring at a pile of wood and wondering what to do with it.
You want to learn coin tricks, how to play chess and poker, and tie strong knots because you never know when the skills will come in handy. You want to be self-sufficient and find your way by the stars. Perhaps for those who come after us, you want to reach them, teach them. This book is the bridge of knowledge for multiple generations.
Hardbound, 270 pages, with numerous color photos and diagrams!
