Husband received it for a birthday gift. He can't wait to try his dutch oven out now that he has recipes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very nice cookbook for campers
My family uses this cookbook all the time.When we started camping we bought a dutch oven and a cookbook to use with it, though I've found any recipe can be used in a dutch oven- because its an oven.The cookbook as tasty, unique recipes and bonus- most of them are very easy.The desserts are great and we've met many fellow campers while sharing our desserts.I liked the book so much I got one for the in-laws.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cooking the Dutch Oven Way
The product "Cooking the Dutch Oven Way" was in very good condition. It was priced very reasonably and shipped promptly. I am very pleased with the transaction.

5-0 out of 5 stars Cooking the Dutch Oven Way
I teach a Dutch Oven class and this is my favorite book.I often purchase it to give as a door prize to someone.You can tell the recipes are tested and true.Its a great book, great for a beginner or someone well learned in the 'Dutch Oven Way'who is looking for new recipes.

2-0 out of 5 stars Good book for a historian.
I love camping and eating by the fire and was looking for a good book on dutch oven cooking.This book is not it.
The back cover states "Woodruff perfected these recipes ... for more than 60 years as a scoutmaster ..."
That period is 1929 to 1989, the publishing date.
By today's standards, these recipes are dated.My son is a scout, and I have been on a number of scout camping trips - and believe me scouts mostly need simple meals to prepare.But Woody is too much into canned veggies, soups, and packaged mixes.You have to look long and hard to find a recipe in this book that uses fresh ingredients.
I suspect that if Woody were alive today, given his obvious commitment to Scouting, he would update most of his recipes to reflect more of today's thinking about healthy eating and fresh food. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Transformed Me and My Family - Great Book
I love this book.Great and simple recipes that result in great tasting food, great overview of the process, and great spirit.My family gave this to me for my birthday a couple of years ago so I would make something edible on our camping trips.Bland carbs are fine for me, but my wife is half Italian and that means she wants to ENJOY her food.The book sat for months and then one day I caved to the pressure to help with dinner at home by pulling out this book.Unlike your typical cook book, these recipes looked quite approachable, and there is a lot of fudge-factor because it is designed to be used on a camping trip, i.e., less risk.Boom; it worked.It was fun and adventurous.The apex was cooking my own turkey-jerky, somehow making me feel like Clint Eastwood, James Bond and Jerimiah Johnson all at once.Most importantly, it all checked out in the outback.Last weekend, for example, we backpacked for a couple days at Mammoth Cave National Park and my family ate Spanish Rice prepared under a tarp in the rain, delicious pancakes, incredible pizza, and on our last day we hiked out having been fueled by beautiful cinnimon roles made with yeast.Am I a man or what?I was surprised to see this book panned by a couple of other reviewers when I went to get the link for a friend, so I have now written what I think is my first Amazon review.Perhaps this book needs an open mind, which I think you need for rewarding camping.I actually first thought the book was not comprehensive enough, but have come to believe that it is a great treatment in a digestible (haw haw) form; not too overwhelming.It goes from very simple to somewhat intense, letting you choose.Somebody said they were looking for "dodgers."I bet the "Quest Bread" is actually the dodgers they were looking for, but with a more inspired name.Overall, this book strikes me as a great combination of simplicity, accessibility, creativity, usefulness, and fun.

1-0 out of 5 stars Nothing I'd cook on the trail
Probably some great recipies for anyone looking to feast in the wild, but I was looking for some basic one burner meals.

4-0 out of 5 stars Lots of good recipes in here
I found this book very good.One of the best recipes is the pizza.It may be hard to believe you can make GOOD pizza in the bush, but I have cooked it numerous times for my family, and they ask for it everytime we camp out.The dessert recipes have been good as well.This is a good book for someone like me that is just learning how to cook good food out of what you carry on your back.

1-0 out of 5 stars Where is the beef?
Was highly disapointed after reading the recipes in Backpacker Magazineand then not finding them, nor similar items in the book.I was impressedwith and interested in hardtack and corn dodgers, which neither one appearsin the book.Also, a more complete title of the book includes"Gourmet Cuisine", had I known that at the time I probably wouldnot have orderd it.I just want to get by with the basics and do not careabout a five star meal.I eat to live , not live to eat.

3-0 out of 5 stars it's a me thing, book is fine
I recently bought a 9" wok on Amazon after a week long trip and I ran into a couple using one - listening to them as we shared a campfire one night ...I was blown away by the history/use/and use-full-ness of the wok (spearate review)

when I bought the wok, Amazon suggested a few things, one was this book. The subtitle "pan to plate in 10 mins" appealed, the price was fine, it had free shipping, so I gave it a shot.

I'm keeping it - but it's just not me. Funny thing is, that i LIKE eating simply in the woods.I go to get away, I go solo as much as I can to just bask in quietness. I camp simply, and I mandate to myself that I must do all out of a single (very large) Duluth style pack. My gear if functional, is very neutral in color and style, in other words - plain.It's who I am.

I opened the book, read a few pages - skipped forward a few more - then a few more - then I was done.With no one's appetite but mine to worry about, all this pre-preparation is a bit much for me.My food bag is simple and small, but I really LIKE pancakes, cowboy coffee, soup packets, maybe a few smoked meats, oatmeal pkts, maybe a few potatoes/carrots - maybe just noodle packets, and I usually have fresh caught fish for dinner every night - simply grilled with a bit of spices - that's about it. I've lived for 3 weeks on that - and 2-3 days is easy.

IN SHORT -it's a nice little book - size = easy to take with you on trail and the meals are greatly detailed and DO seem simple to prepare and take with it. If you crave varied tastes, this would probably be a good one to have around.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not my first pick, but may be good supplment for hikers.
After reading many reviews, I purchased this book, BACKCOUNTRY COOKING, and THE BACK-COUNTRY KITCHEN by Teresa Marrone.I can't help but compare the two books, so my opinion on this book is relative to my opinion of the other.

The introduction of BACKCOUNTRY COOKING categorizes camp chefs as Ascetics, Pragmatists or Gourmands.This book leans heavily toward the ascetic-pragmatist end of the scale.As the subtitle, FROM PACK TO PLATE IN 10 MINUTES, may suggest, the emphasis is on quickly-prepared meals.As a consequence, the meals tend to be simple.If you're someone for whom part of the challenge of the camp experience is to create fabulous multi-course meals in the wild, this book is not for you.And, as expected for a book from BACKPACKER magazine, the emphasis is on light packing and cooking with a single-burner stove.

The first part of the book discusses ingredients, tool and procedures as does Marrone's book, but I find the discussion in THE BACK-COUNTRY KITCHEN to be better and more complete, in particular, providing much more detail in home drying foods.BACKCOUNTRY COOKING discusses a plethora of grains, most of which I've never seen in a grocery store. (Different kinds of oats, different kinds of rice, bread bases, etc.)Baking methods are very briefly touched upon, but the book goes little beyond single-burner stove-top cooking.

Sidebars from different magazine contributors are interspersed throughout the book, and give good tips.Some black-and-white photos are also sprinkled throughout the book.

After the introduction, the book goes into the chapters containing the recipes, with each chapter representing a mealor course.One very nice thing is that each recipe includes nutritional information.

Now, I just have a so-so opinion of this book, and it was hard for me to establish why.Like I said, I found the introductory information to be better in the other book.But I think part of my indifference is due to the recipes.There seem to be a lot of ethnic foods - Oriental, Middle Eastern, Mexican.The desserts are mostly rice and bread puddings (yick), and include mincemeat (for dessert?!).Maybe you eat a lot of hummus, but I suspect many people will find that a lot of the recipes are not the kind of things you find at home, and perhaps the trail is not the best place to find out that your body has strange reactions to strange food.Furthermore, many of the ingredients, such as the grains and beans, are things I just don't see in the local supermarket.To the author's credit, they give a complete appendix of mail-order companies, but I'm not particularly excited about paying shipping to experiment with recipes.

Teresa Marrone's book, although including more multi-burner, multi-pot recipes for canoeists, car campers and others able to carry more gear, also has many single-burner lightweight recipes for hiking.It seemed to me that her book had more recipes that BACKCOUNTRY COOKING but, in fact, the number of recipes were similar.(BACKCOUNTRY COOKING has 144, and THE BACK-COUNTRY KITCHEN has 150.)

My recommendation is to start with Marrone's THE BACK-COUNTRY KITCHEN.If you feel the need for more single-burner meals, or more quickly-prepared meals, augment it with BACKCOUNTRY COOKING.

5-0 out of 5 stars Eat Well
This book has a good amount (it's not War and Peace) of recipes that are tasty and easy for backpacking!Also a chapter or two of good advice concerning food in general...how to pack it, what kinds of things work, making your own dried foods, etc.Each meal has a chapter, like Breakfast, Lunch, whatever...there are no-cook things, all the way to fresh baked bread on the trail and pizza.Yum!(well no I haven't done the pizza or bread but I'm going to try it since they sound so good!And easy too)

4-0 out of 5 stars Mostly recipes
If you are looking for a book full of recipes, then this is the book for you.I would say they make up about 80% of the book.The first part is about gathering ingredients and there is a little wisdom about takingprecautions against animals. I got this book to complete the series, but Idon't really like to read a bunch of recipes, but someday I might.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally a book for those that like to eat
This book is excellent. It may not have the largest number of recipes, but the ones it does have are well thought out, backpacker friendly, and just plain good. The book has a lot of variety too. Each recipe is organized into two parts, the pre-hike preparation (what to do at home) and then thena on-trail section. The authors have tried to simplify the on-trailrequirements making meal time easier. The book emphasizes using standardingrediants (no more expensive store bought freeze-dried stuff) andincludes instructions for preserving (dehydrating) your own. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not what I had hoped for
The ideas aren't particularly simple but can be done with a bit of forward planning. However, there aren't a great deal of new ideas in the book and if you are not from the US you will need to Google a lot of the terms (shoestring potatoes, catsup, etc). I was hoping for lots of ideas of quick and easy grub for cooking on a stick and bizarrely this book doesn't really provide that.

3-0 out of 5 stars Very cutesy.Maybe a gift for a 1st grader?
Very little book with very little information.Good book to help build excitement for a young child (6?) who is going camping for the first time.Otherwise, pass on this one.Book needs more recipes or pictures or games or something.

3-0 out of 5 stars A cute book
This is a cute book filled with great ideas.This book is for those camping in a city campground though, and not for backpacking in the woods.It's also not a very good choice for the picky eater.

1-0 out of 5 stars waste of money.
All this is all over the internet.Nothing new and exciting here if you camp with groups like girl scouts or boy scouts.Get it from the library or search the internet for ideas

5-0 out of 5 stars fun book with neat ideas
I got this book at the library, but then came now online to purchase it.The ideas presented were fun and easy.I hadn't used tin foil on the campfire before, and the author gave some good ideas for that as well as items to be cooked on a stick.For example, I loved the idea about melting chocolate and bananas in the banana peel wrapped in tin foil.One reviewer commented about the use of perishables in the recipes.That wasn't a concern for us because of the refrigerator in our trailer.I suppose one could put the food items in an ice chest as long as one could drive to his/her campsite.

I highly recommend this book.It's fun and easy food for families while camping. ... Read more

Product Description

Bad cooking ruins more camping trips—America’s most popular outdoor vacation activity—than anything else except rain. The Great American Camping Cookbook offers the delectable remedy: a camp cook’s guide to the fresh, natural “comfort foods” of the good old days. Whether your camp is a civilized weekend cottage, a rustic hunting or fishing cabin, or a primitive canoeing or backpacking bivouac, this book can help anyone make meals as vibrant as the outdoors itself.

Start the day with Wild Rice Pancakes or fresh-baked Cornmeal Blueberry Biscuits. Sit down to a classic shore lunch of Beer-Battered Smallmouth, Campfire Potatoes and Hush Puppies, or simple sorrel-stuffed trout. On rainy days, simmer up a pot of real Corn Chowder or Camp-Style Bean Soup. For memorable main courses, serve up a substantial Modernized Brunswick Stew, Blackened Yellow Perch, or Sautéed Walleye with wild rice and mushrooms. For side dishes, try fresh Camp-Baked Beans, spit-roasted Acorn Squash, or Sand-Baked Potatoes. Then savor a legendary Hot Buttered Rum or Camp Old-Fashioned as a nightcap.

In addition to recipes, The Great American Camping Cookbook offers a wealth of easy-to-follow advice on making perfect camp coffee and camp breads, calculating food portions, and composing provisions lists to assure variety and avoid forgotten essentials. The colorful history of American camp food and cooking—from the Jamestown settlement, Lewis and Clark, and Daniel Boone to Ernest Hemingway and John McPhee—adds fascinating lore to this essential guide to eating well in the great outdoors.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent and Inspirational Camp Cookbook
I researched many other camping cookbooks before ordering this one. I actually bought it as a gift for my sister's boyfriend, an avid camper and kayaker who has all the gear. It was hard to think of something to get for him that he wouldn't already have. This book was perfect! He loves to cook and experiment over the campfire. I knew it was a hit because as soon as he opened it, he started reading through it right away. (all his other gifts were in a pile on the floor) The best part for him was a chapter on cleaning and cooking fish (he likes to fly fish). There were some excellent and easy recipes. I had looked into other camping cookbooks, but the recipes seemed very complicated. I was trying to find something that wouldn't require packing a grocery cart full of ingredients. The recipes in this book are simple, and many of them draw on ingredients you could pick up at a farmer's market on your way to the campground.

4-0 out of 5 stars A tasty compilation
While picking out an armful of books at a used bookstore in my neighborhood, I dithered over whether to by this book; it may be a used bookstore, but it's not a cheap used bookstore.

This turned out to be my favorite of the four or five books I bought that afternoon. I heartily recommend it to anyone who has occasion to cook in the outdoors.

Most of my camping has been while backpacking, and most of my meals have been quick, simple and required little more than reconstituting oatmeal or soup or a freeze-dried meal with boiling water.

Now I have young children and until they get the strength and the desire to go backpacking, most of my camping will be car camping. Boy, could I have used this book this summer! Imagine had I known how to make bannock bread rather than trying in vain to get an edible biscuit from a roll of Pillsbury dough burned in a field-expedient oven? Imagine if I had taken an iron skillet in the field (I use them all the time at home) rather than some lightweight aluminum thing that burns the food every time?

What if I had actually caught a trout?

This is an eminently readable book. Pick it up and start reading and you'll find it hard to put down. The author gives us excerpts from many famous Americans' writings about cooking and eating in the wild and there is much we may learn from them.

If you're only going backpacking, this may not be the best book for you (but then again, I never buy just one book on any subject), though backpacking is covered, too. But if you can take a skillet and some perishable food on your trip, this, I think, is the book to have.

Now you should know this, I haven't had a chance to try any of the recipes yet. So until I have tried some of them, I'll give it four stars. It deserves that just for being interesting and well written. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book.....a little more than I would do, but.....
Bought this and the 1st edition.Really has some good ideas and very thorough in the directions.Actually, pretty entertaining.....However, some of the recipes are just more than I would try.I guess I need to hire a cook on my next climbing trip.....

4-0 out of 5 stars Advice, tips and inspiration.
Eight hungry souls and myself were heading out for an 8-day trek through the Andes (Peru), and I was put in charge of menu selection.I searched Amazon.com books that would give me a hand in developing the menu for the group.I found "More Backcountry Cooking," and, overall, I impressed.

Though the book was not perfect, see my `problem' paragraph below, it did provide me with some good ideas to make the meals more ambrosian. I found Dorcas S. Miller's advice, especially her 17"Hot Topics" (40 pages), to be informative and practical (choosing the right stove, carrying your kitchen in a pack, etc.)

She has great tips and many charts (charts-cooking time, salads, more) as well as great appendices.Most of her recipes are easy, appealing and clearly explained.

However some sections are better than others,and her breakfast selections, well, was as appealing as `tofu pancakes'.

My greatest problem with the book is that is designed for those in the US and I am backpacking in Peru, a developing (third world) country. Millers' recipes use `mucho' instant and dried ingredients.Here in the USA it is not such a problem to purchase them, but where I am going the markets do not carry instant or dried ingredients.That means I had to buy everything here and lug it to Peru.My bags were already full, and at their weight limit. Thus, many of the recipes were not practical. I point this out for those of you that will be heading to remote and faraway worlds.

That said, the book was still informative, helpful and I recommend it for any backpacker or camper who wants good food under the stars. ... Read more

Product Description
Imagine this: You're at a campsite 10,000 feet up in the Third Mono Creek Recess of the high Sierras. You have no refrigerator, no food processor, no non-stick cookware, no measuring spoons, no pepper mill, no sea salt. How are you going to cook a meal that is imaginative, delightful, and delicious? That's what The Leave-No-Crumbs Camping Cookbook is all about.Rick Greenspan and Hal Kahn show anyone who loves the outdoors how to make homemade pizza, braid challah, wrap poached trout in a sushi roll, and even make dumplings for Chinese dim sum at their campsite.

Campers who have never cooked anything more complicated than s'mores might feel uncertain about tackling chocolate mousse in the wild, but Greenspan and Kahn have three decades of experience teaching camp-out cooking. "We've taught people who could barely boil water," they say. And they are reassuring about trailside mishaps. If your grilled trout falls into the fire, take it out, brush off the ash, and rename the dish Cajun Blackened Trout. If the eggs break in their plastic container, make a dinner of crépes, huevos rancheros, and a cake. "The point of wilderness cooking is to have fun," say Greenspan and Kahn, "not worry if the Académie Française is looking over your shoulder." You'll find recipes for soups and stews; fruit, vegetable, and tofu dishes; pilafs, risottos, and polenta; pasta, noodles, and dumplings; sauces and schmeers (that's Yiddish for spreads); pancakes, crépes, and soufflés; pizza and quiche. An entire chapter is devoted to trout, and the book even includes a recipe for chocolate cake. There are instructions and tips for all sorts of of cooking techniques, including dehydrating, baking in coals or on a camping stove, grilling, frying, and steaming. And several pages are devoted to trip planning: how much food to bring, what to look for in a camp stove, how long you can expect your cooking fuel to last. This book is perfect for car campers, backpackers, bikers, canoeists, tail-gaters, and day picnickers who want good food to be part of the outdoor experience ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Leave No Crumbs
This book has great recipes, especially considering most backpacking food comes in freeze-dry packaging. The writing is entertaining, as well as very comprehensive and useful.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best backpacking cookbook around!
I used to think lightweight backpacking meant settling for bland meals until I came across this cookbook. Not only are the anecdotal stories from this book entertaining, but the recipes are so delicious and easy to follow that I use them at home just as much as I do in the wilderness. The menu from my most recent backpacking trip included: pad thai, risotto, calzone, fresh baked bread, chocolate cake, and sushi. All my backpacking comrades were completely blown away! The book also includes a slew of handy tips to help you get ready for your outdoor culinary adventure. If you are someone who loves backpacking as much as I do, but wants something more satisfying to eat after a long day of hiking, this book is for you.

My husband and I are avid campers, and granted we like to eat well. But a nice grilled steak or a trout with lemon slices and pepper wrapped in foil with a salad on the side, takes only minutes to prepare and is just as good to us as a meal we would spend hours at the coleman to make.And those meals would leave us time to play in the woods, swim, or sight see.Granted the book has some cool ideas and tips but as a cookbook to the dedicated camper instead of the gourmet, forget it.

2-0 out of 5 stars Get Your Dehydrator Ready
When I purchased this camp cook book, I didn't realize that the recipes would all share one thing in common:they involve using the food dehydrator at home before the camping trip.It's really a gourmet dehydrator food cook book!

3-0 out of 5 stars Cooking When Camping
This "camping cookbook" has some very good ideas in it.Most of the recipes, however, do not seem to practical for tent camping considering the lack of storage and refrigeration.Using a home dehydrator is an excellent idea. If one were camping with an RV these recipes would be very useful. ... Read more

i read this book and i learned alot thank you

5-0 out of 5 stars Great ideas for novice and experienced outdoor cooks
As an outdoor trainer, I find this (and other Dian Thomas books) invaluable parts of my personal training library. She offers many simple yet intriguing ideas for outdoor cooking fun, suitable for novices or experienced cooks who want to add flair to their outdoor cooking experiences. My particular favorites are the wheelbarrow grills (great when the local ordinances will not allow us to build a fire on the ground) and the turkey cooked hung from a tripod (We fed 15 people with a "bird" done this way. It took a lot of work to set it up, but we were paid off in oohs & ahs for our inventiveness!)

5-0 out of 5 stars "Roughing It Easy" is da bomb!!!!
Roughing it easy was problably the best camping book I have ever read. It had lots of inovative ideas that made my camping experience very memroable. Another book I might recomend is Roughing it Easy 2.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the few down to earth fun camping/cooking books ever!
I have over 35 years experience in camping, hiking, survival training and having fun and a great experience in the back yard and the wilderness.This book offers a smile and easy fun for enjoying the rough aspects of the outdoors.I am sincerely disappointed that it is out of print. It must be that the publishers has his/her toenails done daily, because he/she has no clue as to what enjoyment this book can bring away from their overdomestication.I have worn out my first copy (the one with the colored pics), but smiled doing so. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Fun book for kids
This is a fun book for kids.It was less detailed than I would have liked, but if you have a parent who knows what they are doing there are a lot of great ideas in this book.My kids love it, and I will keep looking and practicing to put some of these ideas and projects into play.There are many more ideas than just can cooking.Cooking on a rock, in a paper cup, in a pit, and in a homemade solar oven are also included.

2-0 out of 5 stars Don't let the title fool you
I remember cooking meals in a can when I was little, so I was excited to order this book for my husband, who is our son's Cubmaster. However I was disappointed (and maybe I didn't read the reviews close enough) to find that there are very few actual recipes for cooking in a can.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very cute, and useful too
This is a really cute and useful book.It has a lot of color illustrations to make it very attractive for a child to read.Also, the concept of cooking over your campfire -- or over several different types of home-made grills that they teach you how to make -- is fun and different.This actually seems to be book two of a series -- the first looks like it's called "Cooking on a Stick, Campfire recipes for kids" by Linda White.

Anyway, the chapters are as follows:

Planning and Packing (make a cooking apron)

Setting up Camp (with a craft for making a banner for your site)

Campires (make a wood carrier out of a sweatshirt, and make some different kinds of fire starters)

Cooking on Outdoor Stoves (make a tin-can grill, canyon sandwiches with English muffins, recipe for asparagus "forests")

Cooking in a (full-sized) garbage can (make a garbage can cooker, make a small "buddy" burner, pizza soup recipe, apple stampede recipe [which is just apple sauce])

Cooking in a paper bag or paper cup (recipe for rise 'n' shine breakfast [bacon and eggs in a bag], chocolate on a stick)

Cooking in Leaves and other foods (bean burgers recipe, bloomin' muffins [muffins you cook in orange peels! how cool!]

Hot rock cooking (sunrise toast and hot rock chicken)

Pit Cooking (fondue and cake)

Solar oven cooking (veggie pie and cookies with granola)

Spit cooking (mushrooms and kebobs)

Dutch oven cooking (stew and cake)

The recipes seem to be well explained and simple enough for kids who are the correct age to actually read the book.(Amazon lists ages 4-8, which from the kid-style illustrations seems right on.)The gimmick of cooking in the woods is fun and safety instructions are included and explained.For example, they explain what makes a good rock to cook on!And they include a long list of supplies and safety equipment, even explaining how to properly -- and safely -- douse a fire. They also cover "what is safe drinking water?" and how to build the perfect campfire.

For those of you who are Family Fun magazine fans, (I appreciate their crafts and clever ideas), for camping fans, and for cooking fans who would like to try something new with their kids, this book is a fun addition to your library. ... Read more

Book is good to teach my kids all about the outside.Cooking on the fire, and dutch oven is fun with them. Would reccomend this book

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun and informative
Loads of great info on camping, doing unique things in the out doors, and being creative.I have the first version of this book, and as a kid, used to love reading through it and trying different ideas.Diane Thomas is a hoot to listen to in person also!A great reference book for new campers and experienced ones alike!I use it with my scout troop!

5-0 out of 5 stars Ideas for cooking with sticks, tin foil, and even tin cans ovens.
Wonderful ideas for "surviving" in rough conditions. Ideas and recipes for cooking with sticks, tin foil, and even tin cans ovens. She tells you how to make everything from washing facilities to solar ovens. Great illustrations

4-0 out of 5 stars Creative ideas for camping
This really is a cool book, with all sorts of ideas for cooking in the outdoors, many that I had never thought of, (like cooking eggs and bacon in a bag stuck on a stick over the fire). The first part of the book talks about outdoor cooking at home, and has some neat frugal ideas for outdoor parties, then the book delves into camping for a chapter or so.(Dian has some really good organizational ideas for large and small groups.)The last 3/4 of the book is devoted to camp cooking.The ideas for cooking over the fire are really cool, and for someone who has done only a bit of camping and car camping at that, really unusual. However, if you like your food fresh and not from a can or packet, the recipes are pretty useless.Here are your cakes made from cake mix and canned fruit, casseroles with cream of whatever soup and all sorts of seasoning packets.If this sort of thing does'nt bother you, then the book should be perfect, if you're a health nut like me, it will. ...
