Hi. I am interested in reading a good biography on Baden-Powell while
at the Jambo in 2 weeks (this is a ticket item for me for WoodBadge). I
can get Tim Jeal's 1989 book entitled, "Baden-Powell" at the local
library or I can purchase William "Green Bar Bill" Hillcourt's,
"Baden-Powell; The Two Lives of a Hero" for $20 or so. Since I am about
broke from getting ready for the Jambo, I'd like to go the Library
freebie route. However, the person at my local council said the Green
Bar Bill book is a classic and is the best.
Have any of you read both books that can make a recommendation to me?
