Review:

"Atlas of the Great Caves of the World combines the best features of an almanac with the coverage of a special encyclopedia and an easygoing writing style to create a book that is a lot of fun to page through at the same time that it's chock-full of information . . . . it is also a very good reference book. The maps alone serve a need which many map libraries have been unable to answer . . . . It very definitely belongs in all geography and geology libraries." -- James O'Donnell, Geology & Planetary Science Library, California Institute of Technology

"This book is . . . a catalogue of the world's greatest caves . . . Readers will inevitably feel a twinge of regional or national pridebut beneath it all there will be a deeper feeling of unity with speleologists throughout the world." --Arthur N. Palmer, Professor of Geology, State University of New York, Oneonta College
