Lone Scouts of America (LSA) was a Scouting organization for American boys that operated from 1915 until it merged with the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) in 1924. The LSA was founded by W. Boyce, publisher of the Chicago Ledger and the Saturday Blade and one of the founders of the BSA. Boyce felt that the program of the BSA did not help the rural boy who could not find enough other boys to form a troop or a patrol.

"Lone Scout: W. D. Boyce and American Boy Scouting" is the biography of a Progressive-era Chicago businessman and world-wide explorer. Paralleling Theodore Roosevelt in many activities, during his lifetime Boyce (1858-1929) attained international prominence--"a man with friends in almost every civilized country." His sustaining legacy, also a reflection of Roosevelt's interest in and concern for children, was bringing the concept of Boy Scouting to the United States and combining it with youth programs established by the YMCA and other organizations. This is the first authoritative biography of William D. Boyce, founder in 1910 of the Boy Scouts of America.

Born to a Pennsylvania farm family, Boyce's monetary successes were as a Chicago newspaper publisher. Between 1887 and the early 1930s, his periodicals were read by millions of subscribers in rural and small-town America.

A lifelong adventurer, Boyce made extensive trips to all parts of the world. During World War One, he traveled to Europe on the British luxury liner Lusitania (three months before it was torpedoed by a German submarine). He made two African safaris and spent nearly a year traversing South America. Sending detailed reports of those foreign experiences as articles for his newspapers, the stories were later reprinted in books published by Rand McNally & Company.

Among the last hugely successful turn-of-the-century entrepreneurs, Boyce amassed a fortune valued in 1916 at $20 million (approximately $328 million in 2003 value). Perhaps because his death in 1929 occurred on the brink of the Great Depression--a time of vast economic and political change, W. D. Boyce has been virtually forgotten in American history. Yet his accomplishments were many, and his lasting gift is the Scouting program he initiated in 1910 and helped finance through the early years, a program that today serves more than four million American boys.

William Boyce had a very important part to play in the history of Boy Scouts of America through his accomplishments and financing efforts. If you appreciate knowing about the early players during the formation of BSA this book is one for your library shelf.

If you want detailed information about a very successful businessman, the man who provided jobs for not only thousands of adults, but for 30,000 - 50,000 of early 1900's American youth, the man who initiated the Boy Scouts of America and the Lone Scouts of America, the man who proposed taking over the US Postal system so that it could operate more efficiently at half the cost, etc., etc., etc., then I'm sure that you will enjoy and appreciate this book. I bought my initial copy of it from the author, but hours & hours of research-use took its toll on that copy (still useable, but a bit fragile). So, thinking too much of this book not to have a good one in my library, I purchased a second copy. I think Janice Petterchak has produced absolutely the best book on the amazing life of William Dickson Boyce.
