The current Cub Scouting books use Kipling's Jungle Book story.
In preparing my pack's program for our Blue and Gold this weekend,
I researched the history of Cub Scouting and added an article to the
program which I titled "Was Your Dad a Lion Scout?". Anyway, 60
some years ago Cubbing started with "Webelos" as the name of an
American Indian tribe and Akela was the chief. My source is a BSA
book titled the history of Cub Scouting.
