Editorial Reviews

Klamath Falls (OR) Herald and News
Backpacking is often associated with sawdust-tasting freeze-dried foods, but Miller shows there are other far more tempting and nutritious possibilities.
Vancouver Columbian
This book is full of culinary delights for hikers tired of freeze-dried food, ramen, and trail bars.
Salem Statesman-Journal
Jacques Demy's 1964 pop-art opera on film, which won the Grand Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, was restored to it original rich color and crispness in 1992, and has now received a new remastering to fully take advantage of digital technology. The resulting image, letterboxed to 1.66:1 (with enhancements for 16 x 9 widescreen presentation), is of demonstration quality, so bright that the colors -- all of starting purity -- practically pour off the screen and so sharp that you can observe the textures of skin and clothing in the medium shots. Also, it's matched by the audio track, a rich and full-volumed presentation of Michel Legrand's music that's a match for any audiophile CD playback one might care to imagine. Additionally, the subtitles -- although they are in the picture area -- are amber with thin black outlines for easy and unobtrusive use. The 92-minute movie has been given a generous 23 chapters, and is accompanied by an eight-minute excerpt from {|Agnès Varda|}'s documentary The World of {|Jacques Demy|} devoted specifically to The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, which is enlightening and informative, and gives some measure of the movie's impact, both in France and around the world as well as a loving portrait of the filmmaker. The only other bonus is a set of trailers devoted to a handful of other foreign films distributed by Koch Lorber.
