About the book
To commemorate its 100th anniversary, Girl Scouts of the USA is launching a yearlong celebration that kicks off with this special look at its history. The organization has culled iconic photographs, documents, and letters from its vast archives that honor the unique sisterhood of Girl Scouts, some never before seen. Images include historical uniforms, memorabilia, and photographs with first ladies of the United States. Organized by decade, this book is the essential keepsake and gift for Girl Scouts members, alumnae, volunteers, and supporters.

Praise for Girl Scouts:

“This lighthearted look at the Girl Scouts is bound to invoke nostalgia and pride in former members and make you crave some delicious Thin Mint cookies."
