Knots:
The Ultimate Step-by-Step Guide To Knots Tying and Using With Detailed Pictures+Bonus Paracord Project

Knowing a range of knots is not something that only sailors or fishermen need to know. Let me tell you one thing, having some skills in tying knots can sometimes even save your life. In this book, you will learn how to tie knots for various situations. You'll see that after practicing for some time, you will be able to tie them perfectly every time.
Let's say you are going into the woods for several days of camping. There are all kinds of animals there that will find their way to your food. Instead of hanging your food out of their reach using some random knots, you can try something like cat's paw to really secure that you will not have someone steal your food. If this is not enough for you, let's take another example. A few really simple knots can even save your life if you need to climb a cliff or if you get stuck in an abyss and you need to tie a rope around yourself so that someone can pull you out.
Knots serve so many purposes. So, you can use them for simple ones such as tying a rope to a tree, joining two ropes or pitching a tent and climbing a cliff. Knowing several knots that can serve you various purposes is a valuable skill you should show off to your friends. There are also lots of decorative knots that you can use for making jewelry, for instance.
