YA-Owen acknowledges that camping has changed dramatically with advances in equipment and clothing. However, whether using the old or new technology, campers still need to know how to tie knots correctly. This book provides that information. First, the author explains the different types of ropes and their uses. Then, the knots are divided into seven categories according to their usage. Each one is clearly explained and described. However, the book's greatest assets are the detailed line drawings that clearly illustrate each step, accompanied by concise, sequenced instructions. A glossary, a conversion chart from English measures to metric, and an index round out the presentation. Knots can be lifesavers in risky situations and this well-illustrated book will provide teens with the knowledge they need to tie the right knot at the right time.
