Inspired by foods from all over the world and the guiding principle of "if you wouldn't eat it at home, why eat it in the backcountry," Laurie Ann March has created over 200 lightweight, taste-tested recipes to turn an ordinary backcountry outing into a gourmet adventure. In addition to the recipes, March covers menu planning, recipe creation, and meal planning for families and larger groups. Color photograph insert.

This is one of my favourite cookbooks! I am a hiker who loves to organize the food for my trips. I always knew that I wanted to make the meals myself but I didn't know where to start or how to use a dehydrator. A Fork in the Trail taught me everything I needed to know...and more! This book has made me realize creating backcountry meals is one of my passions in life! If you want to learn how to prepare healthy and delicious dehydrated meals yourself then this is the book for you. It is true that A Fork in the Trail will forever change the way you eat on your outdoor adventures. Your companions will be amazed and jealous of what you will pull out of your pack!
