Editorial Reviews

Pat Bell
Excellent: Marrone is experienced in back-country travel and understands the constraints of wilderness cooking, yet the recipes are practical and creative. Wish this had been out years ago!
Stu Osthoff
A great book. Prepare and truly enjoy delicious, easy-to-cook high energy 'real food' on your next adventure. There is a better way to eat in the wilderness than bland expensive freeze-dried. This book will make a believer out of you.

    Excellent, esp. for lightweight packing; GREAT Nook usability

    Great book for anyone who wants to avoid buying expensive, nasty freeze-dried pre-packaged meals, because it shows you how to pack your own lightweight mixes using purchased dried foods (like dried potatoes in Betty Crocker mixes, that sort of stuff). It also shows you how to dry your own foods at home. Also has recipes that would work for car camping and situations where weight is not such a big concern. Really has a lot of interesting recipes, and the home-drying info alone is worth the price. Unlike many other books I've got on my Nook, this one actually uses the Nook's capabilities... has lots of clickable links so that when a recipe or technique is mentioned, I can click on the link and go to the relevant page. Also has some decent color photos showing various techniques.
