Author Margaret Howard has teamed up with avid camper Kevin Callan to provide nutritious recipes that can be made and enjoyed in the great outdoors... There are sufficient options in the cookbook to keep wilderness campers and their soft adventure counterparts interested. Recipes for high calorie and nutritious snacks for hikers on the move: granola squares, fruit 'n' fiber cookies and cereal bars that can be made at home are easy to prepare. The authors also offer useful tips for menu planning, foraging for ingredients and cold weather nutrition. (Publishers Weekly
Scrumptious wilderness pleasures galore. (Joanne Richard Sun Newspapers
It is easy to read and understand. The recipes are practical in the backwoods... [It] includes quality advice on cooking gear and essentials that are truly camper tested. Lots of pictures... The recipes tell you what preparation can be done at home... I love this book. Buying it is risk free... if you don't like it for some strange and unexplainable reason... it also makes great fire starter. (Campologist.ca
The compact, easy-to-use format is a not inconsiderable asset of this inclusive, attractive handbook on preparing meals while enjoying the outdoors. In calling this a gourmet camp cookbook, the authors aren't just putting on the dog. Although the champagne-and-caviar route is not the direction they follow, their book certainly promotes campsite meals that are a cut above hot dogs and hamburgers. Underscoring their advice is their laudable sentiment that the best part of planning a [camping] trip is organizing the food. (Brad Hooper Booklist
