Whether you are planning a visit to one of Indiana's tourist caves, looking to explore some of the state's wild caves, or just curious about Indiana underground, this compact and comprehensive guide is the place to start. Here you'll find a wealth of information about the features and creatures of Indiana's subterranean world. A Guide to Caves and Karst of Indiana explains how caves are created, the different geological features to be seen in them, and the types of animals that inhabit them. There is plenty of practical information about safety and cave etiquette, equipment and caving organizations, as well as descriptions of individual caves and their history. There is also a brief directory to help put you in touch with other cave enthusiasts -- and their knowledge and experience. For those whose interests lie above ground, the book also describes and explains the karst features that are such a prominent part of the Indiana landscape and how they relate to what lies beneath.
