BOOK OF OUTDOOR KNOTSby: Peter Owen
Meticulously illustrated handbook that 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. Anyone who ventures into the outdoors will want this exceptionally clear and illustrated guide to seventy of the most common knots. Over 300 line drawings; 5×8 inches, 144 pgs.
