In this carefully curated guide to more than 80 knots, bends, hitches, loops, and lashings, he expertly helps readers choose and tie the right knot, with step-by-step color photos that are stunningly clear.Last but not least—although often overlooked—Holtzman also includes instructions for untying every knot. After all, from changing a sail, to repositioning a climbing rope, to splicing a broken tent pole, untying a knot is often the very first step!
