The book concludes with this paragraph: "Daisy's courage and spirit despite her ill health, deafness, and advancing years continue to be an inpiration to the girls of the world. Her goal, and the goal of the Girl Scout movement, was to help each girl to think big, to discover and develop the possibilities within her and in the world around her..."

"You can't go wading, Daisy Gordon," shouted Randy. "You go with the other girls. It's not ladylike." Daisy paid no attention. The water was cold. A high wind made tiny waves in it. Suddenly she saw a tiny animal bobbing along ahead of her. She started after it...."
