About this book

Much of New Guinea's mountainous terrain consists of pure limestones, massively bedded and cavernous. Speleologists are therefore attracted, despite the difficult overland conditions, humidity and high rainfall, and have made great progress over the last 30 years in exploring some extraordinary caves. The author of this comprehensive survey has lived and worked in the country.
