His unique book explains how to select and use ropes, cordage, and webbing for the outdoors. Invaluable information is provided on rope handling techniques (how to avoid dreaded tangles) and the best methods for rope care and maintenance. Step-by-step directions for tying over 40 knots are clearly illustrated with photographs. Other useful features include a glossary and a knot comparison chart by activity. Chapters include Knots Basics (from Tripod Lashing to the Figure 8 Loop), Knots for Hikers and Climbers (from the Prusik knot to the Autoblock), Knots for Canoeists and Kayakers (from the Buntline hitch to the Bowline on a bight), and more. This is the definitive text on ropes and knots for anyone who plays in the outdoors!

Knots: The Complete Visual Guide is a clear, comprehensive, and practical guide to tying more than 100 knots. The book begins with the basic information you will need for choosing, using, and maintaining ropes. There are then seven sections on different families of knots: stopper knots; binding knots; bends; hitches; loops; plaits and sennits; and splices and whippings. Step-by-step color photographs and captions show exactly how to tie each knot. A gallery spread of photographs of the finished knots opens each chapter, providing a valuable cross-reference to the step-by-step pages. Each chapter contains History spreads, which give the fascinating back-story of how some of the knots came into being and explain their original purpose and function, as well as Thematic spreads, which present the essential knots for a range of activities in a single, easy-to-access location. Double-page picture spreads add color and context throughout the book. Icons show at-a-glance the categories of use for each knot, and the book also contains a full glossary.

What Knot contains over 150 knots and splices which are illustrated in full color throughout, accompanied by step-by-step instructions. When the knot involves two or more ropes, different colors are used to clarify how the knot is actually constructed. This book book also includes helpful information on cordage types, tools, etc., together with a comprehensive glossary of terminology. Each chapter is organized by knot type: overhand knots, half-knots and half hitches; figure of-eight knots; bowlines and sheet bends; crossing knots; wrap-and-tuck knots; and mavericks and mutations. Each knot has useful colored tabs on the page which indicate to what activities they can be applied, such as Boating & Sailing, House & Garden, Outdoor Pursuits, Caving & Climbing, and/or Crafts. Anyone can tie knots. Learn just one or two and you will be glad you bought this book. Learn ten and it could make a difference to your life. The ability to tie a few basic bends and bindings, hitches, loops and lashings, is an invaluable skill. Knotting is a fundamental but fascinating process, being an art, craft, science and philosophy, all rolled into one.
