Join Westy Martin, Benny Stein, and Warde Hollister as they undertake a camping trip along the Old Indian Trail. The main purpose of the trip is to help Benny develop his Scouting skills, but many adventures intervene which seem to get in the way of this goal. There are thieves from New York, a mysterious hermit, a sad family farm story, and a forest fire, not to mention a dark, deep pit, a lot of rain, and some flooding! Find out if Benny becomes a First Class Scout, or remains a Tenderfoot, and discover who is the true hero of this story. [Suggest a different description.]

Author Bio for Fitzhugh, Percy Keese

Author Image

Percy Keese Fitzhugh (1876-1950) was an American author. His first known work, The Goldenrod Story Book was published in 1906. The bulk of his work, having a Boy Scouting theme, revolves around the fictional town of Bridgeboro, New Jersey. Characters included Tom Slade, Pee-wee Harris, Roy Blakely, and Westy Martin. Fitzhugh's Scouting based books were very popular with children and adults. His characters became so real to his readers that it was not uncommon for Percy to receive fan mail addressed to the characters themselves. In the 1930's, he began writing the Hal Keen Mystery Series (10 titles) under the pseudonym Hugh Lloyd. They were followed by another mystery series - Skippy Dare - (3 titles). Neither of these series achieved the popularity of his Scout work.
