This isn't a book about hike-in camping. You will need your car along for all the stuff she recommends -- though I'm sure you could trim it down quite a bit to suit what you want. But it does show how you can camp enjoyably with kids and even infants, while eating good (read: amazing) food. Stuff like sourdough pancakes, crepes, hobo pies -- all stuff you can make over the campfire. There are real-food versions of graham crackers and marshmallows too. It's kind of up to the amount of prep work you want to put in and money you want to spend -- you can camp as light or as luxe as you want, without compromising on healthy food.
Though I think my favorite part was all the tips, from tent setup and care to fun kid activities to do while camping. It's easy to say "well, we can't camp, we have little kids," but she really makes it sound doable. I know it is, because we've done it, but things would have gone more smoothly if I'd read this book first. ;)
I don't intend to ever follow that (to me) extravagant meal plan or buy tiki torches and a screen tent. But it did get me excited enough that I'm planning a camping trip later this summer, and you better believe I'll be using some of the tips and recipes.
There are also plenty of tips about what to bring, how to camp with different age groups, prepping and packing, setting up camp, etc. Some of it may be/will be redundant for people that are already campers, but for someone who is just starting to explore camping with children (especially) I think it will be very useful. After reading the book I badly want to take our kids camping more regularly!
I also thought it was a great idea for couples to include camping supplies on their registry, maybe you won't end up with 5 blenders that way!
I did like the ebook for the camping info I could read. It was interesting and fun. Lots of ideas.
