The American Boy’s Handy Book: PART ONE

The American Boy’s Handy Book: PART ONE (PDF ebook)

Today’s resource is Part One of this wonderful, classic collection of projects from yesteryear for adventurous boys (and girls!) to make and do all year long. This is an absolute American classic, and is still in print today in a huge thick volume of over 500 pages. (It is so big, we’ve had to split it into two parts for easier downloading.) The Handy Book is filled the stuff of dreams for generations of red-blooded kids who have been fascinated by the projects it presents, and eager to try them for themselves. Warning: Some of these old-time projects are not for the faint hearted, and could potentially be hazardous… but we’ll leave it to you to moderate your kids’ enthusiasm over what is in this book. In Part One, the author guides us through projects for Spring and Summer, including: building kites, kite fighting, unique ways to fish, building an aquarium, knots, water telescopes, boat building, wooden toys, hunting, even taxidermy! Heavily illustrated.
