Camp Cookery - Outdoor Cooking Secrets From 1910. By Horace Kephart. Originally published in 1910, this early outdoor cookery book gives recipes for outdoor delicacies such as Lungwort bread and dried beans. Written by Horace Kephart a renowned outdoorsman of his time, this delightful and fully illustrated cookbook contains, in addition to recipes, a wealth of advice and comments on camping and life in general. "The knack of camp outfitting consists in getting the best kit in the least weight and bulk. Wise campers prefer to go light, doing without most of the appliances of domestic life. t follows that camp cookery is an art distinct from the cuisine of kitchens. Originally published in 1910, this is a comprehensive presentation of all that is needed to set-up a successful camp kitchen from provisions and utensils, to dressing and keeping game and fish, building of fires, proper utensils, and preparation with various recipes." Contents Include Provisions Utensils Fires Dressing and keeping game and fish Meat Game Fish and shellfish Cured meats etc eggs Breadstuffs and cereals Vegetables, soups Beverages and desserts Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive.

Informative, witty, and humorous. It is not at all modern, with many of the terms, well, one-hundred years old. It does lay a very solid foundation for outdoor cooking without the use of modern processed foods. It's the cook book I'd read first if I was planning a hike.
