Editorial Reviews

From Scientific American

...a must for all outdoor rescue personnel. It examines all contemporary tools found in the swiftwater rescuer's tool box...an exhaustive collection of current rescue techniques and swiftwater safety.

From The New Yorker

...the most complete text ever written on the subject. It should be mandatory reading for all public safety personnel.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Todd Trimble on June 12, 2001
Format: Paperback
A good text for introducing what you need to understand before taking a course on swiftwater rescue. Combined with the guidance of experienced instructors, this book will be a good start to your water rescue career. As always, though, don't expect it to substitute for field work and safety sense...
