Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Handier than The Dangerous Book for Boys, more dangerous than The American Boy’s Handy Book. Beware! Skinned knees and mischievous deeds, fire-building and fitness-training, bird-watching and fox-tracking: All this and more are to be found in—or will result from—what’s contained in this endlessly enjoyable book. Anyone who has ever wanted to recapture the simple pleasures of youth will find much here to relish—and to share with the younger generation. Boys (and girls!) will love this indispensable compendium of activities, directions, and facts, and it will help them discover that there are wonderful alternatives to today’s eye-glazing world of television, the Internet, and video games. Written by a father and son team, The Adventurous Boy’s Handbook features step-by-step instructions for building a treehouse, pitching a tent, and shooting a bow and arrow. Great hikes, as well as what gear is needed for walking, running, even snowboarding, are included in this essential book of boy stuff. There are sections for the “”armchair adventurer,”” too: On reading hieroglyphics, learning sign language, and keeping a journal. From model-building to horseshoe-throwing, The Adventurous Boy’s Handbook promises to be a favorite guide to having fun that will be consulted time and again. 200 b/w illustrations.
