The cover really caught my eye, and that’s why I first picked up the book. The line drawings and the design of the book made it look like one of the classic camping texts from fifty years ago. These great authors of the past are honored in the beginning of the book, which I thought was a really nice touch. After perusing the contents, I discovered this handsome little book boasted an impressive range of topics. And after reading the whole thing, I was really pleased. Topics ranged from packing up your gear and selecting camp friendly foods to foraging, hunting, trapping, game processing, and many methods of primitive cooking. Of course, an entire book could be written on each of these topics, but this book gives the reader a great foundation in the arts of procuring and preparing your own food.
