Make your own high-quality backcountry meals.

Are you a seasoned backcountry hiker seeking to lighten your pack? Or, are you a canoe tripper looking to bring variety and savings to your meals? Do you have dietary needs that ready-made meals cannot accommodate? Are you a front country car camper or overnight hiker looking to get deeper into the backcountry? Backcountry Eats is a valuable tool on how to take your trips a step further and explore the backcountry on multi-day adventures.

In Backcountry Eats, Kevin Ride demystifies food dehydration techniques and outlines everything you need to know to make your own dehydrated meals for backcountry travel.

Within these pages you will discover how to:
- select a dehydrator,
- dehydrate food of various types (fruit, vegetables, meats, seafood, grains, pasta) safely.
- meal plan and ration plan,
- portion and package your meals,
- select a stove and fuel,
- bake in the backcountry, and
- protect your food from wildlife.

Backcountry Eats includes a recipe section with over 100 dehydrated recipes featuring simple one pot meals that rehydrate by adding water, but also rounds-out your repertoire with other recipes such as fruit leather, jerky, granola bars, baked items such as bannock, and a variety of hot drinks.
