I'm gonna use this for hiking and camping :)
This book has so many amazing recipes that I'd love to try; therefore, too many to type in my list of raw foods to try whereas I will have to purchase a copy of this book in the future.

Significance of drying foods (which I recently bought a food dehydrator): reduce spoilage and increase food storage life. Keep in cool, dry location to protect storage life. Removes weight and easier to carry; camp food and for hikers; and preservation.

Record drying times, temperatures, and details and how it was

This book is very helpful. There is an excellent overview of the drying process with clear instructions about how to prepare foods for drying, materials needed, and general procedure. I especially liked the fact that the author gives reasons for certain procedures - for example, she suggests using the dehydrator in the garage if you are drying particularly potent smelling foods (garlic) so your home does not become permeated with the scent.

I have just received a dehydrator and am anxious to try

good info on dehydrating. Not too many specifics on what to do with said dehydrated unless you follow their recipes.

Great reference book for the beginner or experienced. Basic dehydration techniques, and a plethora of recipes. I would have preferred few recipes and more basics though.

Well written book on food drying. Lots of terrific sounding recipes. Got this from the library, but will probably buy my own copy to have on hand as a good resource.
