If you are a scout leader buy this book and plan your first trip. The introduction is excellent for the boys, explaining in concise language how to prepare and execute backpacking meals. The book even includes step by step instructions on how to prepare your first meal. There is a good portion of recipes that require drying equipment but not that many that you are limited. The book is more of an instruction guide with suggestions and tips on how to prepare rather than a list of ingredients and how to put them together.
I have a trip planned in two weeks and plan to test out several of the recipes on the trip. I will update once I get back.
I have not been able to locate the NIDO powder at any specialty stores near me but have found it here at AmazonNestle Nido Instant Dry Whole Milk, 12.6oz - Pack of 2 Cans

It's been several months and a couple of trips on the AT later.
I have field tested many of the recipes and I have to say they are excellent. The directions are spot on and I have my son who is a webelo looking to the book to prepare the next meals when we are hiking. When we get home he tells mom that the food was excellent. I have also purchased the companion Dutch oven book and have receive rave reviews for the jambalaya.

Color Name: Paperback
This is a great recipe book from people who are experts in the field, the Boy Scouts. You do not have to be a Scout though to enjoy these backpacking treats. There are some great unique meal suggestions for any meal of the day. Enjoy a selection of ethnic based choices Thai Peanut Shrimp or Jerky Spiced Rice. You can also enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner with chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes and cranberries. We made this recipe for lunch in the backyard to test it out and it tasted great. We are looking forward to testing more of these recipes and enjoying delicious food in the back country.

There are some great recipes to try as described. There are also recipes that I will experiment with (as many chefs do :-) For example, some of the recipes rehydrate by boiling water in a pot, adding the ingredients and then simmering. I'd like to try using the vacuum pack bags I package meals in and pouring boiling water into them (approved by the manufacturer) and then placing them in a cozy to heat and rehydrate. This would add to preparation time, BUT cut down on fuel consumption and the amount of dishes to wash! That said there are some great recipes, good directions, and a sprinkle of humor as well in some of the descriptions. Great book!
