A Brief Background of the Boy Scout Fieldbook (BSA)

2nd Edition—Fieldbook (1967-1984)

After letting the Fieldbook be out of print for 8 years, BSA brought out a Second Edition in 1967. No author credit is given. The book is also lavishly illustrated with black-and-white photos, and has a brief "Quick Reference Key" on the back cover. There were two cover variants, plus the BSA allowed Workman Publishing to produce a commercially available version with a third cover. The commercial version also included a 16-page color insert of Norman Rockwell Scouting paintings.
