On my honor Boy Scouts and the making of American youth by Jay Mechling( )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 1,856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'On My Honor' explores the folk customs of adolescent males in the Boy Scouts of America during a summer encampment in California's Sierra Nevada. Mechling uncovers the key rituals and play events through which the Boy Scouts shapes boys into men. He describes the campfire songs, initiation rites, games, and activities that are used to mould the Scouts into responsible adults. The book provides a provocative, sometimes shocking glimpse into the sexual awakening and moral development of young men coming to grips with their nascent desires, their innate aggressions, their inclination toward peer pressure and violence, and their social acculturation

Children's folklore a source book by Brian Sutton-Smith( Book )
6 editions published between 1995 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A groundbreaking collection of essays on a hitherto underexplored subject that challenges the existing stereotypical views of the trivial and innocent nature of children's culture, this work reveals for the first time the artistic and complex interactions among children. Based on research of scholars from such diverse fields as American studies, anthropology, education, folklore, psychology, and sociology, this volume represents a radical new attempt to redefine and reinterpret the expressive behaviors of children. The book is divided into four major sections: history, methodology, genres, and setting, with a concluding chapter on theory. Each section is introduced by an overview by Brian Sutton-Smith. The accompanying bibliography lists historical references through the present, representing works by scholars for over 100 years
