Caves are mysterious and fascinating places. Join author Stephen Kramer and cave photographer Kenrick Day as they describe in words and pictures how caves form--and the amazing animals, plants, and rock creations that can be found there. See how cavers walk, climb, crawl, and squirm through places they've never been before. And learn how to cave softly, protecting these delicate environments as you explore the dark, silent world underground.
