Harry Savory

A Man Deep in Mendip
by John Savory
Publisher's Description
Harry Savory, a pioneer in the exploration of the cave systems in the Mendips of England, was one of the first to explore its underworld with the camera. This book presents almost 100 of Savory's superb photographs--most of which have never been published before--capturing in fine detail the extraordinary formations in the caves and the character of life above ground during the period. Accompanying the photographs, the caving diaries vividly recall the hardships of early exploration, as cavers found their way through intricate systems with only candles for light. This is a fascinating and informative document.
