Synopsis: A new edition to celebrate the 30th birthday of the classic outdoors cookbook! When it appeared in 1982, The Hungry Hiker was the first cookbook for backpackers (and canoeists and campers) that made possible superb meals on the trail. At the time, the renowned food writer James Beard summed it up: "There are all kinds of simple but delicious soups, camp breads, main dishes, salads and even desserts." Since then, tens of thousands of Hungry Hikers have become happy eaters -- and more than a few stay-at-homes have discovered how to make simple, delicious meals quickly and easily. What's more, The Hungry Hiker features extensive information about planning hikes, with suggested menus and packing ideas for one to 10 campers. The author describes sources of packable food -- and tells how to make delicious meat jerky, dried vegetables and tasty fruits and snacks. The Hungry Hiker is ideal for outdoors teachers, guides and group leaders, in addition to all individuals who want to eat well in the outdoors. This newly republished edition contains all the features of the original, plus some updated information and comments on food and equipment sources. Writing in The Adirondack Almanack recently, John Warren praised Gretchen's straightforward approach. "Thanks to the book’s emphasis on skills and mostly natural foods, the book is as relevant today as it ever was.... The book’s focus on whole foods, simply and tastefully prepared, echo the values of today’s urban homesteaders, locavores, and young farmers." The Hungry Hiker's Book of Good Cooking was first brought out by the publishing house of Alfred A. Knopf, which teamed Gretchen with editor Judith Jones (who brought French cuisine to the US via the works of Julia Child) and illustrator Susan Gaber, whose whimsical drawings add zest to the humor and good sense of the author.

From the Inside Flap: A cookbook that tells you how to prepare your own delicious fresh foods ahead of time at home and then cook them outdoors over a camp stove or fire. Over 135 recipes.
