In Casteret's Footsteps

'We entered a large chamber with walls of pure crystal and its once white floor flat as a still pool. On this 'lake' of calcite sailed galleons of rock and we wandered round like children in fairyland.' Join Len Cook for another of his tales of caving in the 1950s.

A Congressional Hearing
