KIRKUS REVIEW

A new hobby is indicated by this stimulating text, new at least to those who have not already joined the ever-growing ranks of ""spelunkers"" or cave explorers. For caves have long been a favorite haunt of the imagination and in this book Polly Longsworth goes into detail as to how they can now be the proper domain of the holiday adventurer- whether in Europe or America. Equipment, location of caves, descriptions and other practical information are integrated with lively biographies of famous speleologists to make this as exciting a book as it is informative.
