This book is so much more than tips and ideas for girls having fun outdoors . . . it's a toolkit of creative ideas to be yourself and to express yourself in innovative, personal ways that blend your love for all things outdoors, fun, fashionable and female -- ideally shared with a community of close girlfriends. What I love and admire about MaryJane Butters is she's the real deal: an authentic organic farmer for decades who turned her love for the land into a passion for connecting women to the inner farmgirl in each of us. Whether you're a hard core camper or never lit a Coleman stove, this book will give you the fuel to do things your way with style and snacks.
I was so excited to recieve this book. Having just recently purchased a vintage camper I was at a loss as what to do with it. I have never owned a camper before and this book was full of helpful info and tons of pretty pictures. Can't wait to get started on my first Glamping adventure.
This movement sounds like soooo much fun, and I'm sure for many people it is (myself included). But the book is mostly an ad for her bed and breakfast which is (are?) tents. With bathtubs. The extreme focus on bathtubs really disqualifies it for mobile camping--there is not even a fiberglass-antique weight comparison. The recipes are all ads for her mail order food company. I think it might be a coffee table book, but the photos are not too good in a kindle format.
I have other MaryJane Butters books and I can appreciate what she stands for. I am definitely NOT as earthy as she is, but, I still enjoyed this particular book. I haven't read it front to back, but, there is a lot of eye candy and some very helpful advice included. If you follow her advice, I can't help but think you wouldn't have a very pleasant "Glamping" experience. . .if that's your thing!
MaryJane takes the mystery out of "Glamping" for those of us that dream of making our own way down the road. She answers questions that I wouldn't have thought to ask and does it in such a friendly, down-to-earth way. I'm psyched and am going to start looking for a camper. Of course, mine will be a sewing studio away from home..and a reading room on wheels...a mobile experimental kitchen...whatever I want. Thank you for writing this book, MaryJane!
While I don't currently own a camper, I plan on getting one. This book is incredible as it covers EVERYTHING you need to know about glamping. I love the stories, the 'how to's, the beautiful pictures, project ideas, helpful lists, recipes and SO much more. When I get my camper, this book is coming along! I love this book and highly recommend it for anyone planning on going glamping!!
I gave this to my mom who is part of "sisters on the fly" and she LOOOOOVES it! It is full of great information and fun stories, it even has projects to enhance your glamping experience. She mentions how much she likes it often, weeks after she received it, so I know it was a hit.
I love, love, love this book. Yes, she's plugging for her bed and breakfast but there are many tips for anyone who wants to get into glamping. Oh, it looks like so much fun. Granted, due to the popularity of this movement it is a lot more difficult to find affordable vintage trailers but this book will inspire you and is a fun read.I read this on a road trip to the Three French Hens Market in Morris, Illinois. There was a vendor with a tiny, vintage camper. I nearly fainted when I saw it. I showed her the book while we stood in her adorable camper. What a fun day!
