This book gives you a better understanding of how to tie and use most of the working knots and hitches. It is written more for the horseman, but the boatman and hunter, as well as the general public, will find useful material in it. These are knots the author had found useful in the past several decades as he rode range, caught and tamed wild horses, packed, ran hunting camps, ranched, and professionally trained horses and taught horsemanship. Paperback, 104 pages. John Sharp died in 2009, leaving a Horse Community missing his knowledge and expertise.
