Being an avid female backpacker always trying to get girlfriends excited and confident enough to venture out into the wild, I wanted to like this book. I truly did. It was such a brilliant idea, that I wanted not just to like it, I wanted to >love< it. Wildly. Madly. So you can imagine my dismay, upon ripping the Amazon box open and creasing the book open for my very first, breathless dowse, only to find .... a lesson on farting.

Says Worick: "To prevent the dreaded fart, eat small meals, and ..." It gets better. There's even a chapter on sex in the forest in which she helpfully offers the fact that "the wet spot blows, even in the comfort of your bed." Turn to page 116 and you can even get advice on how to talk dirty - "it might not come easily to you, so start slow."

Call me a prude, but the times I've spent in the wilderness, were about ... hmmm ... the WILDERNESS. The sky, the trees, the desert floor - all the wonders of the world around me. In fact I typically find myself so captivated by the Great Outdoors that I have little or no time to be worrying about which facial mask to apply or how to suck on my boyfriend's toes.

I thought city girls were known for their class. This book isn't as much urban chic, as it is urban redneck.

My husband volunteered to review this book, thinking that Betty referred to Betty Crocker and it was going to be about cooking in the wilderness, something he dearly loves to do. He only had to read the first sentence of the first chapter: "I don't know about you, but it's hard for me to focus on the task at hand or the fun in the forest unless I've got my toilette taken care of and odor issues under control," to know that it was time to hand the task over to his wife instead.

Jennifer Worick appears to be an accomplished author having published "over twenty books on dating, pop culture, crafts, and chick-friendly topics." My guess is that Ms. Worick already has a readership made up of "Bettys" that appreciate her down and dirty tell-it-like-it-is style, and they are most likely the target audience for this book.

If you are a Betty, my guess is you know who you are. If you are a Betty interested in learning about camping out, I would not discourage you from ordering "Backcountry Betty" because it does contain information for a newby camper that is accurate and might be quite helpful. She tackles packing, dressing, hygiene, eating, sleeping, insects, wildlife from bears to men, and just about everything in between, and actually gives some very good common-sense advice.

If, on the other hand, you are uncomfortable with discussions of menstrual periods, having sex in the wild, avoiding sex in the wild, body odor, bodily functions, how to attract one or more sexual partners, how to please the sexual partner you brought with you, party games, and other randy topics you will not like this book.

This was purchase by my wife....from her: I loved this book! It covered even the naughty parts of backpacking, as well as the other parts like nails polish, what to wear, what to eat, how to cook it, what animals are unfriendly, and how to make whoopie in your tent. Hilarious!

I loved this inspired little book from the moment I saw it. Content aside, this is a very cohesive collection of complimentary aesthetics, cute illustration, camping list cataloging and all other apropriate subject matter. This book is truly well thought out, perfectly executed and extremely helpful for city women to suburbanite gals.
I'm a born-and-raised car camper (I camp at sites that you can drive to, park by and have running water and bathrooms available), but this book also offers great intel for backpacking, long distance camping etc and in any climate. I bought this book for myself, then bought it for all my friends who aspire to go camping but honestly don't have a clue where to start. This book made me laugh; it cleverly addressed female topics most books avoid and provided a wealth of knowledge oncooking, sanitization, smart gear, games and great problem solving information that I found very useful...and I'm a pretty good camper.
So buy this for yourself, buy this for your girlfriends buy this for your sisters or get this for any chick you may have to go camping with in the future, especially if they are used to being pampered.

this book is: Indespensible, comedic and chic; it really delivers.

... but I feel this is a good book for gals who are timid about the backcountry, or even just what's outside their front door. Like I said, I am not a Betty and have done a significant amount of hiking, lots of car camping and some backpacking.

Backcountry Betty breaks down all the basics in simple, very funny, and informative chapters. From basic hygiene, sensible food, smart first aid (evacuate), making and breaking camp, navigation (learning to use map & compass is a must) to what to wear where ... Betty provides good solid information, along with checklists, a glossary of terms, and a resource list for more information.

If I was trying to convince a non-outdoor friend that it was safe and doable to venture into the countryside, I would recommend this enjoyable, non-threatening read.
