The Out of Doors Club (Paperback)
The Out of Doors Club, originally published in 1919, introduces the adventures of the "Band," young siblings led on imagination-filled hikes by their father. In twenty brief essays, many set in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey, Samuel Scoville Jr. reminds readers of simpler times--when the world held fewer cares and nature walks with a parent could be the highlight of a day. Trekking through fields, bogs and forests, canoeing down rivers, the Band learn amusing lessons about nature and life. Readers, meanwhile, will appreciate the gentle and loving relationship depicted between father, mother and children.
