IntroductionTHOSE who have read The Boy Scouts of Woodcraft Camp, the first book in this series, will need no introduction to most of the characters of the present volume.

Four of them are members of Dr. Merriams famous vacation school in the deep woods, a camp conducted under Boy Scout law, but with tribes instead of patrols, each tribe having as chief a Scout of the first class. Three of them were principal characters in the second volume, The Boy Scouts on Swift River.

On that trip they made practical use of the things they had learned at Woodcraft Camp, and their experiences further fitted them for the severer tests, such as are necessarily entailed by an overland trip through the wilderness, such a trip as in this volume they take in their search for Lost Trail.Every boy with good red blood in his veins is heir apparent to love of adventure. It is his birthright.

In the preceding volumes and in this I have endeavored to show how Nature is ever ready to gratify this. She has seized upon it as one of the most powerful factors in the development of courage, self-reliance and true manliness. The great woods, the mountains, the lakes and rivers are her class-rooms, and those who seek knowledge there cannot but gain physical and moral strength.In The Boy Scouts of Woodcraft Camp and in The Boy Scouts in a Trappers Camp I tried to portray my idea of what a summer camp for boys should be. In The Boy Scouts on Swift River I drew from my own experience to show what average boys may find to-day of wholesome excitement, of clean living and of daily tests in moral and physical stamina by being thrown on their own resources in a vacation spent canoeing on a wilderness stream.

In the present volume the tests of woodcraft and self-dependence are a little more severe, but only such as might reasonably be encountered on such a trip. There is none that Boy Scouts of the first class could not successfully meet.(...)
