"More than just a cookbook, this publication features incredible photos, anecdotes, and recipes highlighting a century of Forest Service heritage." --Gray Reynolds, President, National Museum of Forest Service History "Some of my most memorable experiences with the Forest Service are of sitting around the campfire, cooking a meal at the end of a long day, and sharing stories with coworkers and friends. This cookbook captures the warm memories shared by many who have had the privilege of working for the Forest Service." --Jack Troyer, Intermountain Regional Forester "The finest food comes from the Forest Service Family and all these recipes look wonderful. I can't wait to try them, but I suspect my favorite will still be my mom's." --Dale Bosworth, Chief, U.S. Forest Service (referring to his mother's recipe for War Cake on page 172) "Sharing a few of my recipes for this book has given me a chance to say thank you! This wonderful publication will allow readers to step back in time as they cook up some of the recipes and savor the photos and stories taken from diaries of past Forest Service employees." --Dian Thomas, Author of Recipes for Roughing It Easyshow more
