Accounts of cave rescues – and failed rescues, such as the Neil Moss tragedy in 1959, and the Floyd Collins tragedy in 1925.
The author, an experienced pot-holer, describes graphically how danger can arise and the means by which, in some cases, disaster was finally averted. He also gives an account of his successful descent of the Gouffre Berger, the deepest cave-system hitherto discovered.
Hardback in red cloth, gilt, pp157 + 16 plates.
Published by G. Bell & Sons, 1963
