Prepper's Guide to Knots

By Scott Finazzo

When your life, home, and property are hanging by a thread, these are the knots too strong to break
When catastrophe strikes and modern technologies fail, ropework skills will become as essential for survival as they were for centuries past. The variety of knots taught in this book are guaranteed to hold against even the toughest forces, ensuring that an emergency doesn’t turn into a disaster. When your life, home, and property are hanging by a thread, these powerful knots are too strong to break:
•Create sturdy shelter with a HARNESS BEND
•Preserve sacks of grain with a BAG KNOT
•Move fallen trees with a BOWLINE
•Transport injured persons with a MUNTER HITCH
•Secure your home against intruders with a ZEPPELIN BEND
•Hang rations above floodwater with a SCAFFOLD KNOT
Prepper’s Guide to Knots features clear, step-by-step instructions on tying each knot. It also provides information on selecting the right type of rope, the history of ropework and the specific benefits of each knot.
