The author covers every aspect of cooking for camping -- the planning, preparing, purchasing tips, shortcuts, techniques and storage.

The recipes are good and are rather "normal" foods like you'd have at home.

I read many reviews and purchased a couple of books on camp cooking, and if I were only allowed to have one, this is it.

When looking for books on camp cooking, one must align their type of camping with that addressed by the book. This book is subtitled CAMP COOKING FOR CANOEISTS, HIKERS AND ANGLERS. The rather varying needs of these types of people are well addressed. The canoeist, or someone camping by car, will carry more pots and pans than the hiker, but with over 150 recipes, all can find something. My wife and I currently only camp by car, but hope to start camping by kayak, and this book was right down our alley.

The recipes are good and are rather "normal" foods like you'd have at home. (Some camping books promote some pretty strange things.) The emphasis is on preparation at home, using ingredients that are light, easily packed and travel well. Most of the recipes require a little more preparation time and are more sophisticated than what you'll find in other books. (If you want quickly prepared, but plainer (stranger?), meals for hiking, see BACKCOUNTRY COOKING by Miller.) The opening chapters discuss the selection of camping food ingredients, and includes a substantial description of home drying which rivals the information in books devoted exclusively to the subject such as HOW TO DRY FOODS. You will probably find having a home dehydrator will be beneficial to get the most from this book. The author describes selection of camp cooking equipment such as stoves, cookware and eating utensils, and briefly discusses camping over an open fire, or with some of the camp ovens available, although most of the recipes are for a camping stove.

Format: Paperback
After a lot of research, I bought this book. From first glance, I knew I had the right book. Recipes run the gamut from simple and tasty Maccaroni and Cheese to more complex Sweet and Sour Chicken. The book contains recipes for breakfast, breads, soups, main & side dishes, fish & game, international, beverages, and desserts & snacks. One chapter covers equipment and camp cooking techniques. At just over 200 pages, it's chocked full of great camp cooking ideas.
Many of the recipes call for dried foods, some of which may be hard to find in smaller towns. However, there is a chapter that explains the basics of home food drying.
This is a great resource for anyone who enjoys camping. Whether you camp in a backwoods primitive camp or a more modern setting, you're certain to find plenty to enjoy from this cookbook!

I was looking for a book to start out a libriary for back-country cooking. I stumbled upon this one. I even use these recipes at home and they are very good, so you can amagine how good they taste on the trial. Simple and easy to prepare from start to finish.

Format: Paperback
This book contains recipes for camp meals that are tastier, larger portioned, and much, MUCH cheaper than the packaged alternatives available at camping stores.

Using a dehydrator and cleverly utilized items from the grocery store (e.g. the sour cream powder from a box of dried potatoes as an ingredient in a very good beef stroganoff) you can assemble a delicious menu for your next outing.

The book is geared towards wilderness camping, with an emphasis on light and dehydrated ingredients, all of which can be economically made in a dehydrator, or bought at a regular grocery store.

The recipes are very nicely classified by complexity of preparation, and length of cook time. The author's loves for cooking and wilderness camping combine wonderfully in this excellent book.

I started wilderness camping a few years ago and I have used this book for wonderfully tasty meals. When weight and space are an important consideration (portaging can be ugly) this book makes me look like a pro. Dehydrated store-bought food can be expensive and disappointing in taste and portions. This book has a simple approach to everything. I like the ease of preparation rating system, suggestions for packing the recipe as well as preparation in camp. Pictures make it easy even for a novice. I usually make a copy of the recipe and put it in the baggie with all the ingredients for the recipe. I like this book well enough to give it as a gift to our friends.

One of the joys of camping is good food eaten and prepared outdoors.

This book is a treasure. The recipes rely very little on commercial processed food. It is not a "dump a can of this and add a can of that" cookbook. Some of the recipes do require home-preparation.

We dry and vacuum seal vegetables for the recipes. Some of the vegetables require blanching before drying. Some of the meat requires cooking before drying.

The results are worth it. A great healthy meal that can be reduced to the size of salami.

Our favorites are turkey tetrazini and beef stroganoff. Both are delicious. While I am writing this, we have carrots and beets drying for the borscht recipe while will be new for us.

Highly recommend if you want to eat well while camping.
