BASIC ILLUSTRATED KNOTS FOR THE OUTDOORS (Falcon)
Cliff Jacobson
A full-color manual for every outdoor enthusiast
In full color, this illustrated how-to book covers the top ten most important knots and hitches, twenty-two variations, and four essential splices and lashings. There are right-handed and left-handed instructions and illustrations for tying each knot, plus tips on buying and maintaining ropes and choosing the correct knot for the task at hand. This guide is easy to follow and small enough to carry outdoors.

    Natural-fiber ropes (such as manila, hemp, and sisal) shrink when wet, while nylon ones stretch under load.

    For example, polyethylene line is very flexible, but it never forgets its store-bought windings.
