Used it 2 years in a row for a 1 week canoe trip with 3 other guys. We loved (most of) the recipes, and they were all extremely filling. Sadly, the dried potatoes don't re-hydrate well for us. The only other issue was sourcing the Butter Buds and the egg powder. Ova Easy stopped producing Canadian-friendly labels earlier this year (and thus cannot ship here). I have never seen Butter Buds or any form of powdered butter here. Thankfully I was able to find a distributor of Thrive brand that could ship here. Otherwise all of the ingredients are easy to find or prepare.

The Kindle edition is usable, but a little cumbersome to navigate through quickly. The paperback is easier to navigate, but it really needs to be spiral-bound, as it's impossible to hold it open while measuring out ingredients. Sadly, most cookbooks make this mistake.

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!

If I could only have one book on camp cooking, this is it July 28 2004
By John H. Henderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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. Then there are ten chapters of recipes, such as "Soups," "Breakfast," "Main Dishes," and "Beverages." Each recipe is marked by icons indicating how many pots are needed, if the ingredients are readily available at grocery stores, whether it requires home drying, or if it requires canned foods. Clear black and white photos are interspersed throughout the book, and there are two sections of color photographs.

I found the first part of the book to be very valuable on its own. By knowing how to prepare ingredients for camping, such as clarifying butter, you can adopt your own recipes or dry mix foods for camping. I tried the upside-down sloppy Joes and beef stroganoff, and later, my wife informed me that mixes were available in the grocery store, so rather than collect all of the ingredients called for in the recipe, I adopted the prepared mixes. Unlike some other camp cook books that rely heavily on freeze dried foods sitting in some general store in the wilds of Colorado somewhere (or require mail ordering), most ingredients are available at the average supermarket (although despite seemingly having EVERYTHING by Knorr, my local Publix does not seem to have the mushroom SAUCE [not GRAVY] called for by the beef stroganoff recipe!).

If you only want one book on camp cooking, want to be rewarded with a satisfying meal, and don't mind a little preparation in camp, this is the book to have. It will take many years of camping to try all of the recipes in this book that interest us.

My favorite camping cookbook, by far. July 7 2008
By B. Naughton - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Can't leave home without it March 19 2006
By Linda Baroni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.
