Extract from preface of book:

The Boy Scout Oath and Law have aided many boys around the world to grow up loving God and Country. In my own life, I have benefited from following the Scout Oath and Law and participating in the rigors of outdoors within the Scout program.

This background served me well in World War II when I trained and commanded the highly decorated 291st Engineer Combat Battalion which gallantly performed in the “Battle of the Bulge” and at Remagén on the Rhine.

The twelfth law is “A Scout is reverent” and without prayer and sincere reverence I know that the 291st and the scout world would not have been of such high quality in the performance of their missions.

The carvings in this book are designed to aid beginning, intermediate, and professional carvers of all ages.

The cardinal is included in this book not only to give me the opportunity to make Monsignor Frederick Stevenson a “Cardinal”, but to satisfy the many requests I have had to show in a book how to carve most everyone’s favorite bird.
