“Roughing It Easy,” by Dian Thomas (Dian Thomas Co., P.O. Box 171107, Holladay, Utah 84117, $14.99).
This classic guide to modern campcraft combines the best of two earlier editions and has updated hints for making camping and cooking safe and enjoyable.
Although the book provides tips and developments for outdoor pursuits from summer through winter, it is largely devoted to various methods of camp cooking, complete with photos and diagrams.
This is not one of those selfpublished books that looks as though it has been produced on a shoestring. It’s beautifully presented at a bargain price. Follow its guidelines, and take the guesswork out of planning.
