Read full description of the books Sailors' Knots:

While attempting to learn a little about sailors of old and their craft I found this book, thinking it would have useful information about how to tie knots. After downloading it to my kindle and flipping through a few pages, (and noticing that again kindle editions have no diagrams.)I almost deleted it. Not being the type of person to give up on a book easily without giving it a chance, I began reading it hoping it would, at least, have very well described directions for knot tying.

This book has nothing to do with tying knots! Having made that point clear, I recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good short story and a chuckle. After reading some of these one chapter stories, I actually set back and laughed at what I had just read. I enjoyed every story in this book. The book contains stories, mostly dealing with sailors and their mishaps in port but there are a couple of gentleman scoundrels thrown into the mix.
