Broughton Philip Delves. Charlie Whistler's Omnium Gatherum: Campfire Stories and Adirondack Adventures
Harper, 2016. — 272 p.
In the tradition of The Dangerous Book for Boys, a visually dazzling compendium of practical knowledge, fascinating trivia, and worldly wisdom for young boys — designed as a charming and informal full-color family scrapbook treasured by generations of one family at their Adirondack summer camp.
On a late summer afternoon, while rustling around in his family’s Adirondack cabin, a boy named Charlie Whistler finds a dusty cloth-bound scrapbook. It is the Omnium Gatherum, a colorful, illustrated grab bag of stories, arcana, and much more, faithfully collected over generations by Charlie’s father, grandfather, and generations of Whistlers before them.
Its pages hold a universe of age-old wisdom, from the simple — how to tie a slipknot — to the esoteric — how to find your way in the forest, or predict the tides — to the exotic — how to understand simple phrases in dozens of languages.
Charlie Whistler’s Omnium Gatherum is a delightful, ceaselessly readable, and unique gift book for boys of all ages: a nostalgic evocation of American childhood, a keepsake for modern fathers to hand down to their sons, and an irresistible, page-turning read for everyone who loves to lose themselves in the world of imagination.
