Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Veteran backpackers Tim and Christine Conners prove once again that they know their territory well. They share a wealth of new trail-tested techniques for packing energy-charged food that doesn't weigh down your pack or you. This is the long-distance hiker's essential guide for dumping the nonessentials and going farther faster while feeling stronger longer."—John R. Clark, Managing Editor, Scouting magazine "With The Scouts Backpacking Cookbook, leaders have a wonderful tool to help them introduce a wonderful skill to their youth. The introduction takes us through the basics and is a great refresher for anyone taking scouts on a backpacking trip. The menus vary from great things to try with a small troop on their first expedition to an experienced Venture Crew looking to "chow down" after a great day on the trail. Well done and a great resource that should be in every Troop and Venture Crew library and used when menu planning!"—Vincent P. Cozzone, Scout Executive/CEO, Venture Crew Advisor Crew 149, Waterloo, Belgium; Boy Scouts of America Transatlantic Council "Christine's and Tim's books are a wealth of cooking and camping knowledge that every novice and experienced camper/hiker should not do without. The recipes are clear and easy to follow and the preliminary "how-to" tips are invaluable for the planning work and safety advice, in order to "Be Prepared" for all possibilities. I think that everyone wanting to learn more about outdoor cooking should run out and get a copy for their cooking library!"—Michael Kaiserauer, Council Training Chair, Boy Scouts of America Transatlantic Council, Berlin, Germany Reviews for the Conners's previous books: Lipsmackin' Backpackin':"Dutch oven, campfire, camp stove and box oven recipes are just some of the many that can be found in this cookbook." —Scouting Life "Authors and avid hikers Christine and Tim Conners have collected and compiled recipes and tips from Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Scouting leaders all across the country representing the best in campout cooking for troops large and small. Each tasty recipe is accompanied by easy-to-read information about cooking method, basic essentials, and instructions. Everyone can enjoy healthy eating balanced by a little bit of indulgence . . ." —Scouting magazine Scout's Outdoor Cookbook:"A unique cookbook for all campers." —Library Journal "Some of [the recipes] are a little wacky, but that's half the fun! The recipes are about good food." —The News and Observer (Raleigh, NC) "You will love these great outdoor cooking recipes, and so will any other camping fan.... Plenty of recipes for every outdoor cooking situation. "—USAFundraising.com

    What cookbook lists the directions before the list of ingredient

    What cookbook lists the directions before the list of ingredients? If the list of ingredients includes foods that I like I read on to the directions, otherwise I skip over to the next recipe.  There are some good recipes in here but I can't get past the weird (to me, at least) layout.  I wouldn't have bought the book if the sample gave a hint of the layout of the recipes.  Can't return a Nook Book, so too bad for me :(
