Founded in 1910, the Boy Scouts became a major organization training boys how to do an assortment of outdoor activities. It also has a moral cause: teaching boys how to make ethical choices as defined by the Scout Oath. In its earliest decades, the organization marketed itself through numerous means, including book publication. This volume, The Boy Scouts to the Rescue, is a prime example. It is one installment in a series of young adult adventure novels with the Boy Scouts as main characters. Through its narrative, it showcases some of the values and perceptions of the early Boy Scout organization. The work remained in print for over a decade as the organization grew.
