Overview

Campers, hikers, naturalists, sailors, fishermen, hunters, and anyone else who ventures into the outdoors will want to own The Book of Outdoor Knots. This meticulously illustrated handbook describes 70 of the most common knots for the outdoors, showing in clear, step-by-step line drawings each phase of the properly tied knot. Perhaps most important, the book explains precisely which knot to use in each specific situation. Knots of all kinds are covered here: hitches for fastening rope to a fixed object, bends to connect two ropes, loops for a range of purposes, running knots, knots to shorten rope lengths, and others. The Book of Outdoor Knots also covers natural and synthetic ropes as well as rope maintenance, general tying guidelines, breaking strength, and more. (5 1/2 X 8 1/4, 144 pages, diagrams, chart)
