Description

Delving Deeper is a comprehensive chronicle of the discovery of world class adventure caving in New Zealand. Most of this has happened since the NZ Speleological Society was formed in 1949. Outdoor and armchair enthusiasts will enjoy the tales of challenge and discovery, as natural history and Maori lore entwine with the pioneering spirit of New Zealanders. This is a continuing saga as the cavers of today strive for two big milestones ? 100km length and 1,000 metres in depth. As well as accidents and rescues this book portrays the other side of caving not often reported in the media.
