I haven't read any books specifically on solar charging systems, but many of the more general books do touch on it. If you really need more information regarding solar power, your best bet is to talk to one of the bigger vendors. Many will be more than happy to answer questions about a possible setup.
One good piece of advice is that if you do go with solar, get a MPPT-type solar charge controller, like a BlueSky or Outback. These will allow the panels to be used more efficiently than would otherwise be possible.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
