Winter has a arrived and brought a burst of cold weather and precipitation across much of the country. This means that many whitewater rafters are going to either travel south to warmer waters or stick it out in the frozen north. Most of us have obligations that prevent seasonal trips surrounding the rafting calendar, so we will have to settle for other forms of rafting entertainment. We can look at our videos and try to figure out where to improve, or we can read books about every rafting topic ranging from equipment to technique. Or, if we want something a bit less educational and a bit more fun, we can read novels surrounding whitewater adventures around the world.
Authors that write about rafting have a deep appreciation for the support, and in many cases, are highly experienced with whitewater and other challenges faced by the rafter. Keep reading for a list of some of our recommended rafting-related novels. Many of these can be found on Amazon.com in digital and hard copies. Don’t forget to support a local or national conservation organization if you shop online through Amazon (and their AmazonSmile program).
