The Boy Scouts Book of Campfire Stories (1921) by Jack London. Clarence E. Mulford, Henry van Dyke, Zane Grey, Irvin S. Cobb, Stewart Edward White, Rex Beach, Jack London, Irving Bacheller, Ellis Parker Butler, Frank L. Packard, Ralph Connor, W.H.H. Murray. The campfire for ages has been the place of council and friendship and story-telling. The mystic glow of the fire quickens the mind, warms the heart, awakens memories of happy, glowing tales that fairly leap to the lips. The Boy Scouts of America has incorporated the "campfire" in its program for council and friendship and story-telling. In one volume, the Boy Scouts Book of Campfire Stories makes available to scoutmasters and other leaders a goodly number of stories worthy of their attention, and when well told likely to arrest and hold the interest of boys in their early teens, when "stirs the blood--to bubble in the veins."
