Lucky me! I have another great book to review. This time we're jumping into The New Trailside Cookbook, by Kevin Callan and Margaret Howard (Firefly Books). From the start this cook book had me “oohing and aahing” over the recipes and tips. With 100 recipes inside, this book has offerings sure to please even the most diverse palates at camp.

When most Woods Monkey readers use knives it’s for the relatively 'tame' stuff: survival, sports, camping, bushcraft, etc. Much like other tools (the best ones anyway) knives can be used for many things. Some of those things are not so tame.
Knife fighting conjures many images and feelings when mentioned amongst fans of knives in general. It can be misinterpreted and misrepresented but it is always there. Since ancient man used a flint knife to survive a fight to the death these less...glamorous aspects have walked like a shadow lurking down through history.
