Campfire Cookery

What a delightful book! I assumed it would be a fun cookbook, but it is filled with many more clever insights like:
- elementary stargazing and orienteering
- tarot card and tea leaf reading
- ghost stories
- interesting information on the "true" marshmallow
- fishing lure & lore
- how to whittle away
- how to build a fire and more....

With whimsical writing like "Oh, sublime magnificence! Would one dare to eat such a peach?" or "To quiet one's cantankerous belly in the peckish hours before the evening meal, one can do no better than these nibbles; we also find that children flock, as if following the Pied Piper, to the tartine table." Who wouldn't want this book? I love it!
