That said, I gave it to a friend of mine who lives in a city and she loved it. Therefore, it might be one of those things where if you live in a city this is a great book, but otherwise it is a waste of time.
However, for those girls (and guys!) who are really in to roughing it, this book offers loads of helpful ideas and great EASY recipes and fun ways to pass the time.
