The American Boy's Handy Book is a handbook of activities intended for boys, written by a founder of the Boy Scouts of America, Daniel Carter Beard. Originally published in , The American Boy's Handy Book resoundingly challenges this age-old dilemma by providing a huge number of ideas for fun and .

Daniel Beard was born in and lived most of his life in Kentucky. From an early age Beard decided to devote his life to American boyhood. He was a prolific writer and illustrator and the founder of two different societies for boys, as well as one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America.

Paperback Verified download. 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. Hardcover Verified download. 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.
In today's world, with our children captivated by the phosphor screen in their rooms, this book is a window to possibilities that this generation has forgotten. The memories that a family will build with this book will be a legacy that will only grow with time. Right now, my brother and his grandchildren are building a "bunk house" in his back yard. Oh, the stories that will be told as the years pass! Delbert Freeman. My son, who I will admit doesn't watch TV or play video game like most year-olds, absolutely loves this book.
He has bookmarks throughout and is constantly coming downstairs with things he's made or going outside and creating something new. Great way to get your guys outside! I would not recommend this book at all. I bought it for my grandson only to return it. I didn't realize it's written for boys living in the s or earlier. Totally does not apply to boys today. A must-have book for any young man.
Helps have an appreciation for their modern conveniences and luxuries. Gave this as a gift to my son for things to do with his son. Lots of great small projects and things to do. Also a lot of interesting things to know about and do with kids and a great way to get them away from the TV. I was given this as a child by my father, who got it from his father. My grandfather knew Dan Beard and was a scoutmaster in the first scout troop -- our family lived in Flushing at the time and rented a house from Dan Beard while their own house was being built.
I read all of his many books as a kid, and ordered this for the son of one of my friends. It's an excellent book and I hope the kid will enjoy it as much as I did.
It's a wonderful antidote to all the video games and junk kids are bombarded with. Text was very, very difficult to read making the book useless. Too bad - the content looked really interesting!
I had to return it. See all 37 reviews. What other items do customers download after viewing this item? The Dangerous Book for Boys Hardcover. Hatchet Paperback. There's a problem loading this menu right now. Try the Kindle edition and experience these great reading features: Children's Books.

Now I ordered 3 more. Instead of kids learning the "recreation" of poking the screen on their phone, this has more worthwhile stuff like how to build hot air balloons with real fire, taxidermy, firearms, animal traps, how to build a boat and travel on a river, etc. This is the edition. They took some of the best stuff out of the subsequent edition, so download this one, not the newer edition.
We homeschool so this will give us This is a fine book. We homeschool so this will give us projects to work on for a long time to come. I don't have any complaints with the contents.
Others have covered that better than I did. However, I do have one gigantic complaint, otherwise, the book would have received 5 stars. The binding on this thing is terrible. The glue is stiff which makes this thick book hard to open. Because it is a thick book, you have to pull the pages back a bit which caused the spine on ours to crack within 20 mintues.
I would have preferred to spend the money for a decent hardback or a much better paperback. This is obviously a parent copy and we will have to look for a PDF version online. Just like I remember this book as a kid. It's an excellent look into how people lived years ago, but many of the projects can still be done today. Dan Beard was one of the early leaders in the Boy Scout movement, and this book is similar to the early editions of the Boy Scout handbook.
Despite the name, this book would be great for Boys and Girls, if they are into outdoor living. I read this book in 5th grade when I checked it out of our school library. I remember needing to learn how to tie a certain knot which is why I checked it out. At the time I thought it was pretty interesting but I basically left most of it unread and returned it when my knot project was finished.
Reading it later as an adult I wish that I had given it more attention when I was a kid because it is a wonderful book. It has a place in every home, particularly homes with children big and small alike Another interesting point is the languauge of the book. Being that it was written well over yrs ago the book has a bit of a different dialect. However it's pleasant to read. It's nice to see even a book on leisure topics written more formally and it's a shame more books aimed at children and parents aren't written this way.
This book would be a great gift to any family looking to do something on a weekend other than watch TV. Books like this should be on the required reading list in elementary schools, not some of the garbage that's there now.
Hardcover Verified download. This is the second generation of male-type children I've given this book to! In this age of gender-sensitivity and political correctness, sassy independent girls would love it also!
I've found that parents highly enjoy the information and team-building projects it features. downloadd as a gift for a 12 year old boy with only minimal interest in reading, this is one book he has voluntarily picked up to peruse again and again. It also proved addictive for the 30 year old brother-in-law during the Christmas visit, so it is evidently a great one for boys of all ages!
I am the grandmother who gave this as a gift. I did not read it word for word, but it does appear to give adolescent boys a handy guide to how to do things when a father is not able to be there to teach them these skills. Love this book!
I bought it for my son at age 8. He was a creative type that liked experimenting and making things and this book gave him many ideas of things to try and the how-to instructions.
Many of the skills included in the book are skills no longer taught to boys, but several still captured his interest. My husband also used it for ideas for activities for church father-son campouts he had to plan.
