The long history of The Junior Woodchuck Guidebook is told in Don Rosa's Guardians of the Lost Library. In that story Don Rosa shows that it contains the very essence of the lost library from Alexandria together with information added by persons as Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus. The library was finally hidden in a secret room beneath Fort Duckburg where it later was discovered by Cornelius Coot. Later he passed the book over to his son Clinton Coot, the founder of The Junior Woodchucks.

In W.H.A.D.A.L.O.T.T.A.J.A.R.G.O.N. Don Rosa shows that there also exists a mini-edition of the guidebook for beginners, and that only full members of the Junior Woodchucks may own and read in any version of the book.
