"Since prehistoric days, the camp fire has been a traditional center for human activities. In this absorbing new book, Ellsworth Jaeger re-creates its age-old magic and suggests how to adapt it to modern life.
Aided by crisp pen-and-ink sketches, the author discuses each step in planning and staging a successful council fire for either junior campers or an adult community group. There are directions for fire building, for the construction of various kinds of council rings and for conducting fire-lighting and peace-pipe ceremonials.
All types of council fire activities are included. Here are detailed descriptions of appropriate games, contests, songs, stories and authentic Indian dances which can be easily taught and effectively performed in the council ring. Specific directions tell how to construct inexpensive council fire awards, masks, headdresses, and primitive musical instruments to complete the atmosphere of beauty, mysticism, and good fellowship which Mr. Jaeger believes should be part of every council fire.
