In this inspirational account profusely illustrated by several diaries and daily logs, a Facebook page of 140 photos, personal letters, and numerous newspaper articles, the Jubilee Jamboree provides a panorama of the activities of the thirty-five thousand Boy Scouts from America and ninety other nations in Sutton Park, England, during the summer of 1957.
Specifically, the United States sent 1,700 of their top scouts as representatives to this gathering. The year 1957 was the one hundredth anniversary of the birth of the British nobleman Sir Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Boy Scouting, and the same year as the fiftieth jubilee anniversary of the birth of scouting in 1907.
Overall, the narrative portrays the daily activities of the American contingent at the National Scout Jamboree in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania, their Atlantic Ocean crossings aboard the MV Fairsea, then the events and living conditions at the jamboree itself, and finally their two-week tour of Europe.
