...In 1961 Vladislav Krapivin founded the Young Scout Troop "Caravel" (A number of publications maintain that the Troop was founded at the request of the 'Pioneer' youth magazine, but in fact the magazine only took the Troop under its wing in 1965.) The range of activities of the Troop are journalism, nautical studies, and fencing. The Troop still exists today, earlier it had the status of a Young Pioneer's Section, the press-center and the sailing flotilla of the 'Pioneer' magazine. Vladislav Krapivin was in charge of the Troop for more than thirty years.
Vladislav Krapivin's first book, "The Voyage of the 'Orion'", appeared in Sverdlovsk in 1962.
Today Vladislav Krapivin has more than one hundred fifty publications to his credit in various languages. His books were included in the "Golden Library of Selected Works for Children and Youth," "The Library of Adventure and Science Fiction," "The Library of World Literature for Children," and in the 26 volume Japanese series "Selected Works for Teenagers" (which allocated two volumes for his works).
Vladislav Krapivin's books have been reprinted numerous times in Poland, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria, Germany, Japan, Hungary, they have been translated into English, Spanish, Persian, and other languages...
