Like The Scout's Outdoor Cookbook, this new cookbook will bring together outdoor recipes, cooking methods, and tips for a Scout-friendly cooking experience. This user-friendly cookbook is aimed at Boy and Girl Scouts and their leaders, but is appropriate for backpackers, campers, canoers and kayakers, or anyone else who wants to eat well in the wilderness.
Having sold more than 100,000 copies of their outdoor cooking books, Tim and Christine Conners are experienced campers, backpackers, and outdoor chefs and the authors of The Scout’s Outdoor Cookbook, Lipsmackin’ Backpackin’, and Lipsmackin’ Vegetarian Backpackin’. The Conners have twice served as judges for Scouting magazine’s prestigious national camp food cooking contest. Learn more at www.booksbyconners.com.
"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!"
