The Lovereading4Kids comment

A comprehensive guide to enjoying one’s boyhood without the Internet, television and video games, just good clean outdoor mischief. Sam Martin’s tells us that in all boys there lies a desire to have fun with a fishing rod, make a catapult, build a fire and track animals so here’s their chance to do just that even if in the end it’s only reading about it and not actually putting it into action. On each page he thoroughly explains how to achieve all these goals and more with easy step-by-step guides, and detailed diagrams.

Synopsis

The Curious Boy's Book Of Adventure by Sam Martin

Filled with explanations and illustrations, and presented in four-colour throughout, this is a guide intended for any boy, aged 9 and over. It contains ideas on how to skate backwards, predict the weather, make a bow and arrow, track animals, launch a bottle rocket, make slime, and also create an indoor volcano.

About the Author

Sam Martin lives in Texas with his wife, Denise, and son, Ford. he has travelled widely and worked as a tree planter in Ontario and British Columbia, an editor at Mother Earth News magazine, and a senior editor at This Old House magazine.

Having earned his spurs over eight long months camping in Canadian forests, he familiarised himself with work and dirt in a way that made it clear: the art of being a man has become increasingly hard to find. In How to Mow the Lawn, he provides an indispensable companion for the twenty-first-century man and the rigours which await him.
