Framing Hipped Style roof?

Greetings! My father and I will be building a house in a few months and he is really interested in a Hipped Style roof, but has never built one like this before. His level of knowledge in house building is pretty basic but we would really like to give this a shot. Can anyone recommend a good framing book that would cover roof trusses or specifically hipped styles?

Much appreciated,

Hip Books

Any Home Improvement store like Lowes or Home Depot, will have a book section. There will be several that deal with hip roofs. Not the whole book, but usually one chapter or a couple of pages. Good Luck
