Later printing. From the introduction: “In this Age of video games and mobile phones, there must still be a place for knots, tree-houses and stories of incredible courage. The one thing that we always say about childhood is that we seemed to have more time back then. This book will help you recapture those Sunday afternoons and long summers — because they’re still long if you know how to look at them. Boyhood is all about curiosity and men and boys can enjoy stories of Scott of the Antarctic and Joe Simpson in Touching the Void as much as they can raid a shed for the bits to make an electromagnet, or grow a crystal, build a go-cart and learn how to find north in the dark. You’ll find famous battles in these pages, insects and dmosaurs – as well as essential Shakespeare quotes, how to cut flint heads for a bow and arrow and mstructions on making the best paper aeroplane in the world.”
