Summary of the Book:
Spirit of Adventure: Eagle Scouts and the Making of America's Futureis Alvin Townley's second book. It continues on the path in meeting interesting Eagle Scouts from around the country. This book introduces America to a new generation of leaders – young Eagle Scouts who are leading lives of purpose and adventure. To meet these young men, Alvin traveled the globe, diving in Australia, surfing in Hawaii, rock climbing in Nevada, venturing into Africa, and cruising home aboard the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz. He discovered an inspiring story of service and leadership.
Who is Alvin Townley:
Alvin Townley spent a year traveling throughout the country to explore the legacy of America's Eagle Scouts. In thousands of miles of travel, he met with Eagles from all walks of life. The result was Legacy of Honor, a uniquely powerful narrative of character and virtue in American life.
Alvin's journey truly began years ago in Atlanta, Georgia, where he followed the Scouting path of his grandfather and father and earned his Eagle Scout rank with Troop 103. He is a Brotherhood Member of the Order of the Arrow and has completed High Adventure treks at the Florida Sea Base, the Northern Tier Canoe Bases, and Philmont Scout Ranch.
The author graduated from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. He has interned in the U.S. House of Representatives, served on the executive staff of an international consulting firm, and worked for his alma mater, where he built relationships with alumni across the country and spoke to classes on corporate strategy and ethics.
Alvin currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia, where he works and coaches at Marist School. He also works with Reach for Excellence, a tuition-free program benefiting talented middle school students from underserved communities.
My Request to you from Steve Silbiger
I met Alvin at the first Los Angeles Area Council Eagle Scout Association event in 2007. His first book, Legacy of Honor: The Values and Influence of America's Eagle Scouts is a great book. Author and Eagle Scout Alvin Townley set out across the country to learn the stories of these leaders. He spoke with individuals from every region, every age and every background, some of whom have risen to fame as public figures while others have left a lasting impact outside of the spotlight
I invite you to preorder a copy of his second book, Spirit of Adventure: Eagle Scouts and the Making of America's Future,in the next 15 days. I believe in this book so much that I am committed to help promote the book to the level that when the book release date hits in May, that the book will be listed on the New York Times Best Seller List.
