The Whitewater Rescue Manual: New Techniques for Canoeists, Kayakers, and Rafters is essential reading for the safe river rat. Regardless of skill, running rivers presents an element of danger -- as whitewater paddling continues to grow in popularity, and thrill-seekers push the boundaries of the sport, accidents are inevitable. This book presents a tightly focused look at the best, most current techniques for both self-rescue and rescue of others on the river. The authors provide well reasoned guidance that will teach you when to stay with the boat and when not to; how to retrieve a lost boat; how to swim out of trouble and when not to swim; how to reach a victim by swimming, wading, or using ropes; how to coordinate a rescue effort; how to make sure that would-be rescuers don t become victims; how to properly perform fist-aid and safely evacuate injured paddlers. This well-illustrated guide is essential reading for canoeists, kayakers, and rafters of all skill levels -- as well as river guide trainees, participants in river rescue courses, and whitewater instructors.
