Forget Me Knots

The rope vocabulary and knot sequences in this book relate, as much as possible, only to ropes (challenge) course activities. The book's content is meant more as a reminder than a definitive text on the subject of knots. A bowline-on-a-bight learned on day two of a workshop often becomes a tangle of memory snipets and rabbits-in-holes by the time a participant returns home. Here's text support that beats a last minute phone call looking for help on those elusive cordage twists and turns; illustrations and photographs throughout.
