The Life and Death of Floyd Collins - Product Image

The Life and Death of Floyd Collins   

Price:  $0.00 

By Homer Collins as told to John Lehrberger in 1955. 2001. 38 b/w photos. 206 pp. 51/2 x 81/2 This is a family story of America's most famous cave explorer who was trapped and died in Sand Cave, Kentucky, in 1925. That story has been told many times but never before has the complete life of Floyd Collins been pre- sented. Floyd's younger brother Homer tells how Floyd was fascinated with caves from his childhood, of his discovery of the famous Crystal Cave on the home property, and of the Sand Cave rescue attempts from the viewpoint of a devoted brother whose extraordinary efforts to save Floyd were rewarded by his being removed from the premises while others inexperienced in working in caves carried on the unsuccessful attempt. It is a warm story of a man whose love in life was exploring caves, a man who endured his grim death with dignity and pride in his vocation. "The book is interesting, and the narritive reads smoothly . . . ." --Bill Mixon, NSS News
