THE CAVES BEYOND

A good yarn for adventure lovers comes from the record of the Floyd Collins Crystal Cave Exploration made in 1954 by a 64 man and woman team, one of the most arduous and complex performances in speleology. Tortuous, step by step description suggests an achievement of the proportions of climbing Everest- as geologists, biologists, communications and logistics experts, photographers and cooks, combined efforts for the 50-cave exploration.
