Riassunto: This profusely illustrated book, written by one of Britain's leading cave divers, is a spectacular introduction to the world's most dangerous sport.
The Darkness Beckons describes the techniques and fascinating history of cave diving from the first known cave dive in 1878 with the familiar globe shaped helmet, heavy boots, and sturdy air lines fed by surface pumps, to the sophisticated rebreather systems used by divers today. This internationally comprehensive book includes stories from the United States, France, Switzerland, The West Indies, Mexico, South Africa, UK, and Australia.
This new book includes both historical anecdotes and accounts of the most interesting recent dives. It is a chronicle of outstanding sporting endeavor, as yet little known outside an elite specialist world, but sure to inspire anyone with a taste for adventure.
Sinossi: This second edition on cave diving brings the story up-to-date with accounts of the developments that have taken place since its original publication in 1980. Apart from activity in traditional areas much of the new exploration has taken place in clear water caves in Florida, the West Indies, Mexico, South Africa and Australia, areas of interest to open water divers as well as cavers.
