The Author is me, Larry E. Matthews, and the Editor is Tom Rea. Tom has done a wonderful job, as usual.
The book has a little bit of everything: archaeology, history, saltpeter mining, rescues, exploration, the Civil War, you name it.
Lot's of NSS members are mentioned, including Bill Cuddington, Roy Davis, Rodger Ling, Buddy Lane, Mark Wolinsky, Don Black, Tom Barr, Joel Sneed and many others.
The research for this book reveled to me some fascinating stories that I had never heard before, such as the 159-foot pit in Ruby Falls Cave.
The book is illustrated with lots of OLD brochures and postcards, courtesy of Gary K. Soule, Gordon L. Smith, and others, and photographs of varying ages, including new photos by Bob Biddix.
There should be something of interest in there for just about anybody.
