Blurb: Book One of the Series, is the first volume of a twelve-book series by this author, and introduces the boys of the Beaver Patrol of Beverly, Indiana, a small Midwestern town. This group of boys, living shortly after the turn of the 20th century, decide to form their own fledgling Boy Scout troop – the first in their area. It is the dawn of the scouting movement in America. The boys have to overcome the skepticism of their elders, as well as attempts at sabotage by a gang of tough boys from the ‘wrong side of the tracks’ who are determined to supplant the Beaver Patrol with their own twisted version of a scout patrol.

See what adventures ensue for the boys of the Beaver Patrol of Beverly, Indiana: Andy, the ‘hot-blooded Southern lad’; the timorous tenderfoot Babe; Seth, a jokester who can switch to fighting mode at a moment’s notice; the peaceful yet deeply valiant Quaker boy Jotham; Fritz, the gifted tracker and ambitious second in command; Eben, the struggling bugler; the roly-poly and heavily-accented German boy Noodles; and of course, Paul, the courageous and almost superhuman Patrol Leader.
