Item Description...
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. It 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.

Poor Quality  Jun 26, 2008
The first book that I received was a Camp Cookery cover and a computer book inside, I returned it. The second book I received was a poor zerox copy that I couldn't read so I returned it for a refund. this site said they could not refund my money as they had provided a replacement. I'm confused and will not order this site sponsored books again.
Indispensible for building camp and cook fires.  Jul 28, 2005
There are plenty of sources that tell you how to make a fire. There are plenty of books on camping, Boy Scout Handbooks and websites all describe firebuilding, or woodcraft, in one way or another. But I still had a time of getting a good campfire going. If the wood was dry then it would start right up, but often turn to smoldering logs quickly. Or we would have nothing available but wet wood. And then there's the "fire ring", which just as often as not is an overturned truck wheel rim. Half of the time I just struggled to get the fire going and the other half keeping it going. Sure I knew that a fire needs fuel, it needs air and it needs heat, but I still almost always came up short.

My able bodied camping assistant had to stand by and watch me curse and throw chunks of wood as I fought to prove that I was a real camper! She decided to take matters into her own hands and got me a book. GASP, did I really need a book on camp fires?? Well, this book isn't about camp fires, it's called Camp Cookery, by Horace Kephart and it was originally published in 1910. Keep in mind that this was when people (mostly men) went camping to go way back into the wilderness to shoot or catch something to eat. It covers camp cooking tools, such as the reflector oven and folding broiler. Mr. Kephart advocates a lot of lard and has a chapter on cooking fresh killed game, like bear and squirrel. But the chapter on building fires is invaluable.

I followed Mr. Kephart's advice on building a quick cookfire. I gathered twigs like he suggested, built them like it is described in the book. I lit it off and within a couple of minutes had a roaring fire with no further tinkering. The same thing happened every time I built a fire. I was sold. The rest of the chapter talks about the differences between a cook fire and a camp fire. It also describes what woods are good and for what situations. This chapter alone makes the whole book worth acquiring if you're serious about your campfire.

Other chapters cover cooking gear, making breads and cooking fruits and vegetables, in addition to meat, poultry and game.
