ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
Raoul Graumont
, born in Algiers in 1896, the son of a cavalry colonel in a French colonial regiment, began his maritime apprenticeship at the age of thirteen on one of the last great French sailing vessels, the five-masted barque France. He learned knot work aboard ship and in the hundreds of foreign ports to which his ships carried him.

He later served in the French Army for eight years until his discharge in 1922. He was a Texas cowpuncher, a Montana lumberjack, a rigger in Washington and Oregon, and mushed dog teams in Alaska.

John Hensel:
Of Danish descent, the late John Hensel was born in New York City. He spent a number of years at sea, beginning at the age of seventeen when he signed on as an ordinary seaman aboard a Canadian freighter out of Baltimore. Considered one of the world’s foremost authorities on knotting, he learned knot work aboard ship and in the hundreds of foreign ports to which his ships carried him.
