An autobiography, this book tells the story of a convert from climbing and mountaineering into the world beneath our feet. From a tentative start and being rescued, the book describes adventures in the underground caves of Britain and unfolds to describe world wide experiences including an expedition to explore Nare, at the time, the largest underground river in the world in New Britain.
The book also delves into the world of American lava tubes and of Des Marshall’s adventures in the Snowdonia slate mines that were literally hacked out of the earth by Welsh slate miners. As a qualified Cave Instructor the book also explains Des’ role in training cave and mine leaders as well as guiding people into the caves of Britain and Europe.
