New Book: The Caves of Grassy Cove (2014)

Postby Larry E. Matthews » Aug 3, 2014 9:13 pm

A new book, The Caves of Grassy Cove, is just about ready to go to the printers. It will be 284 pages long in an 8.5 X 11 format and will feature the caves of the Grassy Cove area in Tennessee.

It was compiled by me, with lots of help from dozens of the original explorers. Tom Rea is the Editor. Featured caves will include Grassy Cove Saltpeter Cove, the Banshee Hole, the Gouffre, Mill Cave, Devilstep Hollow Cave Jewett Cave, Jewett Two Cave, Run to the Mill Cave, Dorton Knob Smokehole, and many, many more.

There will be a Book Signing at the Crossville Public Library on Tuesday, October 21. Come join us. Crossville is about 10 miles north of Grassy Cove. As usual, the book will be printed and distributed by the NSS, so it will be available from the NSS Bookstore.

The NSS has been notified by the printer that the expected shipping date is September 11, 2014.

So, the book should be available for purchase in about three (3) weeks. I still do not know what the price will be.

The "Caves of Grassy Cove" is now available from the NSS Bookstore. Price is $31.50 for Members and $35 Retail. Postage is extra, of course.

I'm hoping to get my first copy in the mail today. I can't wait to see how the printing job looks.

I have a few ideas for other books, but have not decided which one to do next.

I probably need a 6 month vacation before I start another one !!!

Here is what the cover of the book will look like. Both photos are by Bob Biddix.

The Front Cover was taken in Virgin Falls Cave and the Back Cover is the entrance to Big Laurel Creek Cave.
