The Caves Beyond: The Story of the Floyd Collins' Crystal Cave Exploration   

Price: $15.95 

Joe Lawrence, Jr. and Roger W. Brucker. 1975 New 15-page introduction by Roger W. Brucker. 74 b/w photos. 6 maps, 318 pp. 6 x 9, (2005 reprint with new cover). In February 1954, under the direction of Joe Lawrence, Jr., the National Spe- leological Society sent the largest, most highly organized, and best-equipped expedition in the history of American cave exploration into Floyd Collins' Crys- tal Cave, Kentucky. The Caves Beyond is the official account of that expedition. It is a classic American caving story. There is no other caving book like it. Brucker's new introduction contains a number of previously untold stories about the expedition, including details of the politics behind the C-3 expedition, and of how the book came to be written in an attic in Brooklyn in two weeks' time. There is also a detailed index, which the first edition lacks. "This excellent book is by far the best written on the adventures of exploring a single cave . . . . This is really a terrific book, and if I had to single out the most enjoyable caving book in my library, this would be it." ?Chuck Pease, Explorers Ltd. Source Book
