It’s time to cook your favorite backcountry meal! 

The Society for Wilderness Stewardship (the Society) is proud to announce the second edition of the Wilderness Ranger Cookbook. Its release coincides with the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Wilderness Act of 1964. The cookbook contains more than 100 tried-and-true backcountry recipes from wilderness rangers and volunteers across the United States. These rangers come from one of the four federal land management agencies that administer the National Wilderness Preservation System (Bureau of Land Management, Forest Service, National Park Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service). The book also includes quotes from wilderness rangers, historical facts, Leave No Trace tips and color photos from our nation’s wildlands. In addition, the Wilderness Act of 1964 is reprinted in its entirety. 

The cookbook was funded by Osprey Packs, Inc. of Cortez, Colorado, working in cooperation with the Society. Sales of the cookbook will assist the Society’s mission to advance the profession practice of wilderness stewardship, science and education of the National Wilderness Preservation System.
