Blind Descent: The Quest to Discover the Deepest Place on Earth - James M. Tabor - Google книги
Tabor takes us on an odyssey into unfathomable worlds beneath us, and into the hearts of rare explorers who will do anything to get there first. A big thumping man-book like The Perfect Storm. Tabor's claustrophobic and pulse-pounding narrativepulls no punches in describing the many terrifying hazards that cavers face underground. Blind Descent is a captivating summer read for adventure seekers and armchair adrenaline junkies alike.

Blind Descent Spelunking The Quest to Discover the Deepest Place on Earth

In March , Krubera lost its title of the deepest cave in the world to its neighbor Veryovkina Cave when Russian spelunkers led by Pavel Demidov and Ilya Turbanov reached its maximum depth of 2, meters 7, ft. Veryovkina and Krubera are the only known caves on Earth that are deeper than 2, meters. Regardless of who eventually wins "Cave Wars," science is the big winner.
