Who hasn't dreamed of getting away from the rushed, hectic everyday world? We all dream, but most of us are intimidated by the thought of the preparation involved in getting ourselves into the wilderness and surviving there in relative comfort. Mary Scott Welch, who describes her self as "citified," conquered |personal needs, sleeping equip- those fears as she was nearing ment, tents, water containers 50. ?rd lights—all equipment meet- She wrote Family Wildernesses the three W's of the wilder- Handbook to help the novice j^ss: weight, warmth, and camper make the transition to successful backpacking in easy, logical steps and to provide detailed information for the already Initiated. The first third of the book provides elementary information on beginning trails, biking, horseback, riding, canoeing, necessary clothing, backpacking clubs, the best time of the year to visit a specific area, how to determine one's stamina and plan a trip that corresponds to that stamina, and the advantage and disadvantages of faking a wilderness vacation with a professional group. Once the beginning backpacker has become acclimated through day and weekend trips, and has discovered the nonverbal joys of the wilderness, he is ready for the nest section of the book.. Here the author provides the information necessary for planning and preparing a vacation trip without the use of a professional group. Included are charts of the 54 wilderness areas in the United States with a description of the area and a list of the nearby towns. She tells how to obtain detailed maps of the area and what to do when the maps are outdated. She explains how to realistically figure the distances when planning the vacation. And she provides detailed information about equipment: cloth- weather resistance. There is a full chapter on food—how to have multi-course meals with ease in the wilderness. Mrs. Welch provides menus and complete food charts for a family of four, always selecting food that will provide ample nutrition, is light weight, has eye and taste appeal, can be kept safely without refrigeration and can be easily prepared. She even explains how to repackage and assemble the food for carrying. Also included in "Family Wilderness Handbook" is information on map and compass reading, how to read a trail, how to walk comfortably with a pack on your shoulders—the little details that will make backpacking an exhilarating experience and will eliminate the painful experiences of trial and error. The handbook concludes with a chapter on C.A.R.E., Caution ard Respect for the Environment. Mrs. Welcn discusses the care to be taken with drinking water, what to do in a storm, what flora and fauna to watch out for, what to do if you or a member of your party gets lost, and what to do with your garbage. This handbook is simply loaded with information for campers—for those who dream of camping and need the encouragement to get out there, and for those who have been; ing, cooking utensils, first aid, camping for years. oum dttttctiow are particularly clear. Some of the world's most unusual ethnic dishes evolved in the Caribbean, where fish, seafood, pork and chicken are wide ly used because the tropical islands have neither the climate nor the terrain for cattle ranching; In "The Complete Book of Caribbean Cooking" (Evans), Elisabeth Lambert Orti2 shows how the Indians, Africans, Europeans and Asians have blended their diverse cuisines harmoniously in the nearly five centuries since Columbus first made landfaU in the Islands. Included are fish, seafood and meat stews, pot roasts, chicken I 6$ CoohbooL cooked with various fruits and rum, rice and bean combinations, fruit breads, desserts and many soups that make a one- dish meal. "Geoffrey Holder's Caribbean Cookbook'' (Viking) is as captivating as is its multi-talented author but more admirable for his writing and illustrations than as a practical kitchen guide. Many of his 77 recipes, especially for salt cod, chicken or fresh fish, are economical, but there is no glossary and no source list for unfamiliar and not readily obtainable ingredients. Holder is best known here as a singer dancer and actor. Golesbura Rcaister*Mail, Galesbura, lit.

The two-story studio on San Francisco's Telegraph Hill where Maggie Baylis lives and works, surrounded by indoor plants, proves her theory cor- ifct. Her knowledge of plants was gained over a 20-year period as the "right arm" to her husband, the late Douglas Baylis, nationally known landscape architect.

The author uses individual spices instead of commercial curry powder. An initial investment in seasonings is required but the basic ingredients of many dishes are lower-priced items such as ground beef, lamb shoulders [and shanks, stewing beef and chicken. Almost all tha spices land herbs are sold in supermarkets. Admirers of Pennsylvania Dutch cooking will find familiar fare in "Food That Really Schmecks" by Edna Staebler (McGraw-Hill Ryerson).
