Beneath the Cloud Forests Beneath the Cloud Forests
Code: TP102

A history of cave exploration in Papua New Guinea from 1965 to 1991.

This account is the only one of its kind in the English language, and the most complete record of speleological explorations in Papua New Guinea published to date. It recounts over three decades of exploration into New Guinea's remote, jungle-laden interior, where some of the longest and deepest underground systems in the Southern Hemisphere were to be discovered by some of the late Twentieth Century's most accomplished speleologists.

Exploring the Limestone Landscapes of the Peak District Exploring the Limestone Landscapes of the Peak District
Code: BCRA19-2

Forming the southern end of the Pennines, the Peak District is mostly within the county of Derbyshire, with a small southwestern area extending into Staffordshire. It has two distinct parts, the 'Dark Peak', with its Millstone Grit moors and shale-floored valleys, and the 'White Peak' to the south, comprising limestone country with beautiful dales and caves. This book is concerned only with the White Peak, which is some 40km from north to south and generally 10-15km wide. The geology and geomorphology of the region is described by means of eleven 'excursions' which may be undertaken on foot or by bike.
