Ernest Thompson Seton - Trail of an Artist-Naturalist

Back to List
Over a century ago Ernest Thompson Seton co-founded the Boy Scouts of America and became the first Chief Scout in 1910. He wrote the first two editions of the Scout Handbook, and more importantly, he initiated the development of the Eagle Scout rank.
Ernest Thompson Seton was a famous writer and artist who founded a boys' program called Woodcraft  Indians in 1902.  Its' manual, the Birch-Bark Roll, provided activities used in Lord Baden-Powell "Scouting for Boys".
Seton's autobiography provides vivid descriptions to give the reader specific instances where he developed his skills as an artist, outdoorsman, scientist, and nature conservationist.  Additionally, he tells how he built the first outdoor education program for youth in America called Woodcraft.  His scientific and community development work emphasized nature and conservation.  It has inspired people all over the world to develop their character through understanding, protecting and respecting all creatures and their habitats.
 A great book on his ideas which are as important to consider today as they were more than a century ago.
