Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
YA-An extremely useful guide for campers who have had a bit of experience. Yaffe provides information on the different aspects of a trip from gathering the right equipment and food, through the route selection, and onto what to do when campers arrive at their site. Her timesaving planning tips and the detailed checklists for preparing for different types of trips will help readers maximize their enjoyment of the great outdoors. Yaffe is a proponent of using a dehydrator for lightweight, nutritional meals that can easily be rehydrated and heated. She provides clear instructions on preparing dehydrated food prior to the trek, as well as over 25 appropriate recipes. Special tips are highlighted in sidebars. Each chapter is divided into easy-to-read sections of no more than two pages. The instructions for buying and using equipment are very sparse. However, experienced campers who want to improve their organization and efficiency will profit from this handbook.-Jane Drabkin, Chinn Park Regional Library, Prince William, VA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
Yaffe draws on 40 years of camping experience to give advice on planning ahead for both novice and experienced campers and backpackers. She gives tips on camping with children and pets, paddling trips, winter camping, and international camping, as well as wilderness camping and permits, preventing mountain sickness, first aid, and even dehydrating food at home to take along on backpacking trips. Includes many recipes. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
