Editorial Reviews


"Susan A. Miller's well-written and meticulously researched interdisciplinary study of scouting summer camps for girls draws upon the history of science and the body to examine a prominent cultural site of girlhood socialization. Miller's imaginative examination of evidence from the ground up (nature and crafts) as well as from the top down (ideas/ideals) sheds new light on our understanding of girls' scouting organizations and their impact on the shaping of American girlhood." -- Miriam Forman-Brunell, professor of history, University of Missouri-Kansas City

About the Author

Susan A. Miller is a lecturer in the women's studies and history and sociology of science departments at the University of Pennsylvania.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Gives depth to the stories of the conflicts that Mrs. Low had with other girl centric groups and the real differences between scouting for boys and for girls in the USA.

This book is a great companion to the book "Building Character in the American Boy: The Boy Scouts, YMCA, and Their Forerunners, 1870-1920" by David Macleod

A serious student of American History, or one that has a deep interest in the "why's" of girl scouting type activities will find this book a good reference.

This book helped me understand the way Girl Scouts developed in the United States. I also learned a great deal about Campfire Girls. The author's meticulous attention to documenting material makes this a great source for future research.
