So I thought I'd start a thread on good books related to what we do.
Could be rafting, kayaking, cooking, camping, and trailer crap as well, whatever.
We have piles of info at our finger tips but sometimes, it's nice to read a good book.
The reason being is I just got one of Bill's books, "The Guide's Guide Augmented" and wow, really kewl. I thumbed through it for an hour or so and then started reading if from the beginning. I'm only a third of the way through the 312 pages of this thing and it is completely awesome. I am sure that some of you old salts have already read it or have the original copy. But I thought I'd bring it up as a great read.
I got it from ::
Books | Whitewater Voyages
I also found, and was able to procure, through eBay, one of his books from 1978 called "Whitewater Rafting". I am still waiting for that in the mail so I'll keep y'all posted on that. I dig anything from the 70's.
Out of respect I should note that the Author of these books is William McGinnis. The dude rocks...
I'll admit, it's odd to go seeking out books like this for as long as I've been pulling and pushing the sticks but I like being educated; now anyhow. Before I was just young and dumb running $hit I probably wouldn't do now.
I recommend a Swift Water Class, and keep up on the education.
So, if ya got a good book to share, let us goof-balls know...
