Jim Allen has been a soldier, a sailor, an auto technician, an off-road driving instructor, a farmer and a writer/photographer. Some of those things all at once. For the past 24 years, he has been writing for magazines and writing books. This will be book 12, if you count second editions. Jim thought he knew a fair bit about Scouts when he started this project but soon learned differently and happily trudged up the Scout history learning curve.
