Product description

Review

Heart-stopping and relentlessly gripping. Tabor takes us on an odyssey into unfathomable worlds beneath us, and into the hearts of rare explorers who will do anything to get there first. (Robert Kurson, author of Shadow Divers)

Hair-raising . . . the chronicle of an obsession to reach the deepest, darkest, loneliest, scariest, least survivable pocket of the planet....A big thumping man-book like The Perfect Storm. (Washington Post.)

Using a pulse-pounding narrative, this is tense real-life adventure pitting two master cavers mirroring the cold war with very uncommonly high stakes. (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

Blind Descent is as awe-inspiring as any adventure story above ground. Tabor's claustrophobic and pulse-pounding narrativepulls no punches in describing the many terrifying hazards that cavers face underground. Blind Descent is a captivating summer read for adventure seekers and armchair adrenaline junkies alike. (Amazon.com Best Books of June 2010)

A fascinating and informative introduction to the sport of cave diving, as well as a dramatic portrayal of a significant man-vs.-nature conflict. (Kirkus Reviews) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Book Description

The New York Times bestselling account of a thrilling real-life journey into deepest cave on earth. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
