Wilderness Ranger Cookbook

Back to Backcountry Recipes


Wilderness Ranger Cookbook by Ralph Swain is a collection of trail-tested recipes from wilderness rangers across all four major agencies that include quotes from the rangers as well as wilderness tips. Even more so, it is also a celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the signing of the Wilderness Act. This book has the backing of the Society for Wilderness Stewardship, the corporate sponsorship of Osprey Packs, and the backing of the four wilderness managing agencies (USFS, BLM, USFWS, and NPS). There is a total of approximately 100 recipes with quotes from the park rangers, color photos, Leave No Trace information and the entirety of the Wilderness Act.
