Robert C. Birkby is an American adventure guide, author, photographer, speaker and trail designer. Birkby grew up in Sidney, Iowa. As a Boy Scout, Birkby was on staff at summer camp, made a trek at Philmont Scout Ranch and earned Eagle Scout. In 2010 Birkby also received the Boy Scouts of America's highest award for conservation: the William T. Hornaday Gold Award

Shortly after the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress gave Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams the job of designing an official seal for the new nation. However, the three Founding Fathers failed to come up with a design that won Congress’ approval, as did two later committees that were given the task. In mid-June 1782, the work of all three committees was handed over to Charles Thomson, the secretary of Congress.

From building trails and climbing with world-class mountaineers to mastering the skills backpacking, canoeing, and wilderness navigation, the books I’ve written have covered much of the globe.

I just bought ten of these to give out to our troop's Eagle Scouts at their Court of Honors. We've bought dozens of Alvin Townley's books in the past, but I'm assuming many land on a bookshelf unread. This is really a coffee table book that can be left out. It will be picked up and read a section at a time. It is laid out really well and has many great photos, such as of the various Eagle patches, of a Scout who got every merit badge, and more. It lays out the history of Eagle Scouts and what it takes to become an Eagle. There is even a note on the cover that a custom cover can be ordered for it using your own photos - now that would be a cool, more personal gift. I'm giving out the first copy this weekend at an Eagle Court of Honor, and I hope our new Eagle Scout takes it with him to college and shows others what it took to earn Eagle, and what it means. Yours in Scouting, Kevin McGrath, Advancement Chair, Troop 3346, Minnetonka, Minnesota.

My brother received his Eagle last December, and so marking his one year anniversary of this great accomplishment I got him this book for Christmas. I wasn't sure about the book at first, but as soon as I got it in the mail I was so excited!! He is 15 and I know he will love it :) It has clean print and pictures, the book was shipped fast and in perfect condition. I'm thinking about buying a second for my dad!!

We bought 2 of these: one for our grandson who just became an eagle scout and the other for another of our grandsons who is working on his eagle. Neither boy seemed thrilled with it, but I imagine they will appreciate it when they have time to look at it. It's not exactly a fancy gift, but I'm still glad we gave it to them.

This is a very nice book. We gave it to the son of some friends. He had just made Eagle Scout. There is a link where you can upload your own pictures to make a personalized book cover, which would make it even more of a keepsake. The gift was well received.

The book is visually appealing and covers the history in an interesting manner. We used the books as a sign in for our Eagle Court of Honor. Personal messages were written by the attendees in the front and back of the book. Great keepsake!

This is a wonderful book, it has lots of great information relating to Scouting. This book is a must for all Eagle Scouts. I highly recommend this book for all Scouts, especially Eagle Scouts.

I purchased this book for a relative who is a boy scout. This book is wonderful to look at and read. Very informative and interesting. Great gift for anyone in the Boy Scout Organization.
I had the privilege to attend my youngest godson's Eagle Scout Court Ceremony. It was truly inspiring! And such an accomplishment! We were all so proud to see him soar! This book was even more special because he follows in the steps of his father, also an Eagle Scout, and joins the ranks of many of our brave and courageous. This book reminds him of this legacy and the important place in American history that Eagle Scouts hold.
