First published in 1975, River Running inspired a whole generation of river runners. Now this classic text is back in print in a completely rewritten and updated guide. Reflecting changes in the regulations, equipment, and popularity of the sport, River Running introduces the modern river runner to craft and gear, technique, planning and preparation, health and safety, environmental issues, and basic river sense.
Long-time expert Verne Huser shares his insights on the nature of rivers-how they act, why they flood, and what to look for when scouting out rapids, holes, and other obstacles-and discusses how to choose from the many types of craft, from traditional wooden canoes to inflatable kayaks and catarafts. Also covered are the different means of propulsion and the latest in safety equipment. All information is presented in the context of running rivers safely, with as little impact on the river environmental as possible.
