Here is a selection of the best packrafting books (at least the best for us) which we could recommend to read and also to get some inspirations. We also did a Whitewater Rescue course before the European Packrafting Meetup in Slovenia and could highly recommend this course. During this course, you will also get a book which explains all kinds of situations which you can face when paddling or swimming in white water.
