Fifth Edition - (1984-2000):

Edition Notes: Cover art by Robert Depew. The last painted cover, with Depew’s first version of Baloo. 256 pages. Illustrations are paintings and natural color ink drawings by Robert Depew.

Historical Notes: Program changes in the late 60s and 70s cost BSA a significant part of its membership. The “Big” Bear Cub Scout Book restored the traditional flavor and challenges of Cub Scouting while holding on to new emphases on racial and cultural harmony and an environmentally-friendly lifestyle.

Quote: We are lucky. The people who wrote and signed our Constitution were very wise. They understood the need of Americans to worship God as they choose. A member of your family will be able to talk with you about your duty to God. Remember, this achievement is part of your Cub Scout Promise.
