See What Readers Are Saying
I’ve been a backpacker for over 50 years. I’ve been a chef the past 25. (There was 20 years beforehand in the military that afforded me an opportunity to live and hike in Europe meant 10 of those years.)
This book would have been my new favorite book had the Internet been invented back then. Even now I am an avid jerky maker and dehydrator. As a culinary instructor I even teach my students how to duo so.
I really enjoyed reading this. I especially liked how the authors got their daughters into hiking. – CJs Pirate
As a backpacker who hates waste and spending unnecessary money I found this book to be just what the doctor ordered! I can now make delicious meals with foods from my local store. I especially like the tips and tricks Dan shares. Knowing these recipes are all extensively trail-tested gives me confidence to live beyond my pop tart, oatmeal, and tuna packs! -K.Neufeld
