Bash script about directories


Hello all,

First time posting here. I hope i'm posting this in the right place. lol

I'm using Bash and i'm in trouble! I'm trying to write a script using Bash to loop through a specific directory and all the subdirectories in it, and then outputing every file in them onto the screen with, possibly the 'ls' command[?] Is there any possible way of accomplishing this?

It would look something like :

User: george/x7
scriptfile
stuff
morestuff

george/x7/junk:
morejunkfiles


also, how would i pipe this thru a 'less' command?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Or this, depending on the output you want:

find . -ls | less
