J. Wayne Fears, in The Field & Stream Wilderness Cooking Handbook: How to Prepare, Cook, and Serve Backcountry Meals, offers more than 100 recipes for the single-burner camp stove or the open fire. Fears, editor of Rural Sportsman magazine, explains the basics of fire building as well as the intricacies of the backpack stove. Recipes include 13 types of jerky, including venison and caribou, as well as the traditional beef. Others include Grilled Turkey, Sherried Quail, Beer Burgers and quiche-eaters beware Baked Rattlesnake. Vegetarian campers will be disappointed, but the typical Field & Stream reader should welcome Fears's hearty approach. (Sept.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
