In 1910 a new figure entered the world of girls’ fiction when Baden-Powell introduced Girl Guiding into Britain. True to the Trefoil celebrates 100 years of that staunch and strong-hearted heroine, the Girl Guide and the fiction in which she appears. The book looks both at the many specialist Guiding writers and at the way Guiding was incorporated into other genres by authors such as Elinor M Brent-Dyer. Affectionate, informative and fun, this book has a colour frontispiece and many illustrations.

  • Individual chapters on Guiding themes in Elinor M Brent-Dyer, Elsie J Oxenham and Antonia Forest
