Petit Guide Knots is a practical and entertaining guide to learn how to make knots for hiking, boating and climbing. Knots are probably mankind's oldest tools. From the earliest people to the present day, by way of the Incas and the Egyptians, knots have followed the history of the world. Their peak use was without a doubt during the 18th century in the heyday of sail, but the art of knotting remains. A knot is the corssing or bending together of two ropes or lines to join them, or the turning of one rope or line on itself. Sailors, sail boaters, fishermen, climbers, cavers, firemen, hikers and campers all use knots. In Petit Guide knots in everyday use, 25 knots are presented with illustrations to easily make them.
