Learn skills that will last a lifetime—just like girls did over a century ago!
The Girl Scouts of America has evolved over the last hundred years from the original group of eighteen into an organization with over one million members nationwide.
First published in 1913, Girl Scouts Handbook is the original reference for girl scouts. This blast-from-the-past practical guide has been the foundation for the organization over the past century, helping young girls to learn the basics of scouting and teaching them useful skills such as:

  • Self-Defense
  • Woodcraft
  • Botany
  • Astronomy
  • Gardening
  • Sanitation
  • Girl Scout Law
  • Self-Discipline
  • Self-Improvement
  • And more!
Rediscover this time-honored classic, featuring color photos and diagrams for the first time, and marvel at what has changed—and what hasn’t—over a hundred-plus years of history.
