Land and Sea Tales: For Scouts and Scout Masters.

Goodreads Review.

A collection of tales, with a little bit of language difficulty due to the time gap. Freely available at Telelib. I recommend it to anyone who has significant involvement with scouting, Rudyard Kipling via The Jungle Books is already well known to the Scouting Movement.

A poem is the last chapter and it is very well done. Putting something new into ‘Eenie, meenie, mainee mo’ is quite hard to do. It is of course my most recent impression of the book. I enjoyed it all, some much more than others. Jim, from ‘An Unqualified Pilot’, would be outraged at the actions of J. Conrad’s Lord Jim, and they may even have heard of each other.
