Scouts Canada does not sell Rovering to Success; I believe that the best
bet would be the Scout Association of Australia.
By the way, I understand that Baden-Powell's descendents have asked that
BP's books (Scouting for Boys, Rovering to Success) no longer be sold
because they are out of date. I don't see anything wrong with being out
of date, as long as it is not taken literally today in 1998: some
information filtering needs to take place first.
The new Canadian Rover handbook is supposed to be published 'shortly', it
is making the rounds in draft form at the moment.
