This is an amazing book chock full of not just food ideas, but carefully adjusted recipes tailored for the high calorie and nutritional needs of long distance hikers. This is completely unlike any "here's what I bring on the trail" YouTube videos which are usually well-intentioned but lacking in proper nutritional balance and convenience for the trail like put forth in this book. Important thing to note: The recipes in this book are really not for the casual hiker or camper... at least in the full portion sizes provided. Typical 'meals' run 700-1000 calories, and are heavily loaded with long-burning fats, as well as quality carbs and proteins. I purchased the eBook version on the author's site (not available on Amazon) and just spent close to 2 hours reading all the critical introductory information, then perusing the recipes, of which there are many covering all aspects of a typical long hike day. Great depth here.
