Because with a little planning, the eating on a camping trip can top your list of highlights.

This book, a cast-iron skillet and a little strategic cooking ahead before you leave home will help you make sure your excellent camping adventures have the food to match. With all the camping equipment wrangling and camp site securing, the food can end up a near afterthought. But with this book, you’ll find it’s not much more effort to eat well while roughing it.

Campers, glampers, there’s something for you here. This would also make a first-rate gift for your friend who is going camping for the first time (or the 57th!) who would appreciate suggestions so it’s not just a weekend of hotdogs and s’mores.
