This book is well done. It traces the Girl Scouting movement from its beginnings in 1912 to the present day. It is chock full of pictures and quotations. By taking a decade by decade approach, no portion of Girl Scout history is ignored.

I actually bought this for myself but this would be a good gift for a Girl Scout Leader or Alum. Its a nice hardcover book with a lot of pictures and history of Girl Scouting broken up by decade with other interesting facts inserted here and there. Haven't read through it yet but flipped through the pages and it was fun to see the historical photos.

I love how precise and comprehensive this volume is. It is written in a delightful format so I can read just the headlines or peruse the paragraphs. The photographs are perfect.

My grandmother recieved the Golden Eaglet Award, the highest award in girl scouting which at one time was determined from a limited number of applicants each year. This award is no longer given and required things that would intimidate today's Eagle Scouts. My mother worked for the girl scouts for many years and my wife was a girl scout into high school. Now as the father of two girls I am interested in girl scouting. This is a great book of history and for examples of positive role models for young girls and women.
