Today's topic is books. BOOKS!

When I looked through this list I felt a certain sense of satisfaction, almost relief, that I've read most of these books since that means childhood has been good to me! Thanks Mom and Dad.

Excellent LA Times article on caves.



"With a cave you don't know

what the goal is.

I can see a mountain peak.

I can see the moon.

When I go into a cave,

I don't know what I'll find."

-George Veni, director of the National Cave and Karst Research Institute


Here is a link to an excellent LA Times article on caves (2-29-2016). Click here to read.  It also includes information about caves managed by the National Park Service and the several that offer tours.

But there are subdivisions."

The Search for Antibiotics (in caves)

Fascinating!

"An upcoming episode of the popular CBC show, The Nature of Things with Daivid Suzuki, follows scientists into British Columbia’s caves as they search for new antibiotics."

Click here to read the story on the Caving News page.

Added bonus:  The cursor acts like a flashlight on the background cave walls of the Caving News web page. Have fun!

That's all for now,
