MOSCOW, Idaho, Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Join the ranks of happy glampers who have added glamour to their camping trips. Whether you want to glam up a backyard retreat, gussy up a vintage travel trailer, or hit the road with your glampin' girlfriends, MaryJane Butters has written THE guide for all things glamping.
In Glamping with MaryJane (Gibbs Smith, $24.99, Hardcover, ISBN: 978-1-4236-3081-4, September 2012), MaryJane offers specifics on everything from how to shop for, fix up, hitch up, and back up a trailer...to how to throw oh-so-glamorous cocktail parties with your glamping buddies. You'll learn how to fix a flat, pitch a tent, rustle up some grub, and what to do when nature calls, all with the unique flair of MaryJane's charming farmgirl style.
Like the infamous Calamity Jane, who said, "I figure if a girl wants to be a legend, she should go ahead and be one," MaryJane coined the term "glamping" years ago when she founded her unusual canvas wall-tent bed & breakfast, which was featured in major magazines, including The New York Times Magazine and Travel & Leisure, as well as on The Today Show, who billed it as "the place to be."
Glamping has since become a worldwide trend, inspiring girlfriend getaways all over the globe and talked about in the media by celebrities who are taken with its fun, glamorous style.
Legend status achieved. MaryJane lives in Moscow, Idaho, where she runs her many businesses, including a successful organic farm, multiple product lines, a bed & breakfast, and MaryJanesFarm magazine. In 2012, MaryJane instituted International Glamping Weekend, an annual weekend dedicated to glamorous camping.
