Description
There was a time when any self-respecting boy (and his father) knew his way around a small boat; how to give a wooden top just the right spin; how to make and walk on stilts; and the rules for at least a dozen different games of marbles and street ball. Fortunately, Daniel Carter Beard thought to write them down here—and now the girls can play too. Originally published in 1896 as a supplement and sequel to his Original Boy's Handy Book, for readers 8 and up, Beard's illustrated collection of outdoor activities contains as much fun now as it did then, with directions for making and flying paper dragons, creating a "city zoo" on a flat rooftop, building a suspension footbridge, and capturing insects and frogs.
