Product Details


Product Description

From School Library Journal

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.

From the Back Cover

High-tech equipment and lightweight apparel have made it easier for campers to get along in the outdoors, but knot-tying skills remain as invaluable as ever: Your high-tech, self-erecting tent may be top-of-the-line, but it will not make an effective shelter unless you can secure it properly in extreme weather conditions. The Book of Camping Knots includes detailed line drawings and step-by-step instructions that will teach you everything you need to know about tying and using the essential camping knots. With sections on stopper knots, bends, loops, shortenings, and hitches, among others - as well as a glossary of terms and an index of knot names - this handy guidebook will be an indispensable companion on any camping trip. (5 1/2 X 8 1/4, 144 pages, diagrams)

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book for BASIC knots May 30 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I bought this book with the intention of learning some basic knots for the outdoors, and that is what I got from it. The book explains about 30 knots with excellent illustrations. You won't find much text in the book, it's mostly drawings. All of the knots explained are very useful, and categorized as well. I do recommend it, to anyone interested in BASIC knots. For a much broader knowledge of knots, another book would be best.
