Summary, etc.:
Knowing which knot to use when and how to tie it can mean the difference between safety and danger or a dry or wet night camping. A well-tied knot is not only a safeguard, but also a thing of beauty. This book presents the essential knots, from classic sturdy, strong knots—including Bowline, Sheepshank, Pile Hitch, and Trucker's Dolly, to the decorative. Instructions on tying each knot are shown in crystal-clear, hand-drawn diagrams, and its uses plainly explained. A perfect gift for the novice or the seasoned expert, each chapter contains a project to practice knots—including a bracelet, coaster, woven mat, and hammock.
Subject: Knots and splices.
