This book is the story of the legendary Philmont Rangers — Scouts who, through their experiences at Philmont Scout Ranch High Adventure Base in New Mexico, aspire to be the most physically fit and principled leaders of their generation.
The Philmont Staff Association has compiled this historical collection of stories about the people, the place, and the program that make Philmont so special. This captivating read is part history, part legend, part "coming of age" story, and part the exuberance of youthful idealism.
The highly accomplished authors are: Warren Smith, a former Philmont Ranger, President of the PSA, publisher of World magazine, and editor of PSA’s official magazine High Country; and Marty Tschetter, former Philmont Ranger, Philmont Staff Member, and first director of the Order of the Arrow Trail Crew Program.
This is the quintessential "Philmont book" and an absorbing read which reaffirms all that is best in Scouting. A wonderful gift and remembrance for any Scout or Staffer who is planning a trip to or has already experienced the magic of Philmont.
