"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
