IN YOU GO! A year or two in the life of a scout leader is about the first couple of years that John Hemming-Clark recently spent as a scout leader in Chislehurst, Kent, England at a time of life when some are maybe starting to think about putting their feet up. 
  
His trials and tribulations as he seeks to learn the ropes with only the most essential training to help him, that and his life experiences, are written about in hilarious detail. 
  
Troop meetings, hikes, camps, excursions, his relationship with beavers, cubs and explorers as well as girl guides, leaders, trainers and managers are all included.
