Cooking over a campfire is one of the essential experiences while camping. You don't have to get fancy for the food to taste delicious. But if you're ready to expand your repetoire, check this books out! After all... hot dogs on a stick get old after a day or two. Wouldn't you rather have a hearty stew and peach cobbler? This cookbook is fantastic. It features tried-and-true recipes perfectly suited for camping. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I especially enjoyed how some of the recipes had stories about their origin. The tips and tricks offered in this book have made me feel confident about cooking up a feast on my next camping trip.
