PACKRAFTING! is about exploring wilderness and whitewater by packraft, a lightweight, portable boat usually weighing less than five pounds. Written by well-known packrafting instructor and adventurer, Roman Dial, this is the first book published on the topic. The slim volume offers both stories and instruction with full-color photographs from trips around the world. Dial shares information about gear and technique as well as the many applications for using small, packable boats. Packrafting can be combined with mountaineering, backcountry skiing, mountain biking or trekking as part of long expeditions, or short day trips.

"It was no accident that Roman was among the first people on the planet to understand that the packraft would revolutionize wilderness exploration" --Jon Krakauer - Author of Into the Wild --Forward by Jon Krakauer
"Roman Dial is the Pied Piper of Packrafting. If you're not careful, his infectious enthusiasm will seduce you to squander every spare moment of your life in search of the next classic day of butt-boating." --Brad Meiklejohn, the Alaska Representative for The Conservation Fund
"There may be no better single tool for long distance wilderness travel than a packraft, and no better instructor for using it than Roman Dial. Roman has proved packrafting technique over and again. The rest of us will benefit immensely from his experience." --Ryan Jordan, Publisher of Backpacking Light Magazine
