Cave Books is a publishing house with interests in nonfiction and fiction having to do with caves, karst and speleology.
Cave Books publishes annual reports, research monographs, full length books, historical reprints and cave maps. Solicitation of manuscripts is an ongoing endeavor and new items are continuously being added to the inventory. Revenue from this effort provides the primary support for many Foundation programs, including the Cave Research Foundation (CRF) Annual Report.
The Cave Research Foundation grew out of efforts of cave explorers working in the Mammoth Cave area of Kentucky in the late 1940's."
Most of CRF's work is conducted on state and federal lands under a national Memorandum of Understanding with the National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior.
