Blind Descent: The Quest to Discover the Deepest Place on EarthBlind Descent: The Quest to Discover the Deepest Place on Earth by James M. Tabor
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Those who know me know I sometimes have trouble with the non-fiction side of reading. Not so with James Tabor’s fascinating chronicle of the race to discover the deepest cave on Earth. Tabor spends more time on Bill Stone, the American, and understandably so, since the information and interviewees were likely easier to come by than those of his counterpart, Alexander Klimchouk. But ultimately, it doesn’t much matter. Stone is quite the character on his own, and his part of the story could have stood on its own. Tabor does a great job of instilling the fear and danger of such large caves, and gives the brave explorers their due. These are some amazing folks who really deserve more attention than they’ve gotten.
