Publisher Comments:

For a generation, the Basic Essentials series has been as much a part of the outdoors experience as backpacks and hiking boots. Information-packed tools for the novice or handy references for the veteran, these volumes distill years of knowledge into affordable and portable books. Whether you're planning a trip or thumbing for facts in the field, Basic Essentials books tell you what you need to know. Discover how to read a rapid and maneuver in the river current, paddle a kayak efficiently and with control, become a safe, responsible river runner, perform self-rescue and assisted-rescue techniques, learn rolling techniques key to whitewater kayaking and much more. (5 1/2 x 8 1/2, 80 pages, illustrations, pull-out bookmark)
