BSA Norman Rockwell's Boy Scouts of America Reviews
Excellent reproductions; nicely laid out; informative text; a small history of the BSA, Norman Rockwell and aspects of American Society. Joseph Csatari admirably and remarkably continues the great tradition of Norman Rockwell. Even his modesty seems in keeping with Rockwell.
Being a Eagle Scout (class of 1973), I've been looking for a book with Norman Rockwell's art of the Boy Scouts.
Great book to have for those interested in Boy Scouting and the great Norman Rockwell. For this scouter many memories were revived from years ago.
For those of us that are boy scout volunteers, and past scouts, we fondly remember many of these paintings. Now we can have a permanent fixure on our coffee tables to refer to these great works of art for many years. Thanks for finally putting this together for all of us to enjoy - I highly recommend you get this for yourself.
I am really glad I bought this book. It is an absolute must for any Scout leader's collection. It would also make for a great gift for anyone involved with Boy Scouting or Cub Scouting.
This is a very well done book of Mr. Rockwell's art work about Scouts. My daughter is enjoying sharing it with her Cub Scouts to inspire them to be good scouts.
Awesome book. The anecdotes are great and the reproductions of the paintings are excellent. Anyone who has had connections with the Scouts will love this book.
