Massive whitewater book and video collection

I have some strange obsession with whitewater guide books and I totally revamped the book section of whitewater addiction here:

Look around you will even find a book about lesbian kayakers?!

Also redid the video section

Let me know if I missed any must haves.

That's an impressive collection. Here are some of the ones that pop to mind that I didn't see:

Books: Torrent
Laugh of the Water Nymph
Downriver-Will Hobbs' fictional story of a group of troubled teens who steal a bunch of rafts and take them down the Grand Canyon with almost no rowing experience
River Thunder-The sequel to Downriver
Savages-Joe Kane's book about using the rivers to navigate South America and take a census of the tribal peoples.
Playboater's Handbook I and II-Ken Whiting
Didn't see a CRC I
There was an old (maybe published 20 years ago?) Colorado Whitewater guidebook with some amusing archaic descriptions
The Squirt Book and all of Nealy's others

Movies: Grace Under Pressure-An excellent instructional roll video
EJ's Advanced Playboating is great, along with all of his others
Play Daze is excellent
What about Paddlequest and Walls of Freedom (mostly skiing with a great paddling segment)
African Queen (Anybody know where the whitewater segments of this one were filmed?)

Obviously, you're missing some good kayak porn, but there's just so much (Twitches, White Album, LVM's, Valhalla, Bigger Than Rodeos, Amongst It is one of my favorites, etc.,etc.).

I know I'm missing some, but those were the first ones I thought of. Thanks for doing such a great job in putting together such an awesome resource.

"whitewater rendezvous". Hot girl on girl action, oh yeah. Didn't Jackie Treehorn make that into a movie? Sorry, Karl Hungus, you're sitting this one out.

spreading the disease-- the only vid better than Paddlequest, Southern Fried Creeking, and Kayak Quebec.

Gotta love the "slot rodeo" scenes
