Add to Cart



A new field guide from Indiana University Press provides a starting point for anyone 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 geology. Samuel S. Frushour's compact and comprehensive book, "A Guide to Caves and Karst of Indiana," explains how caves are created, examines the different geological features in them and tells about the types of animals that inhabit them. Frushour is retired head of the field services section of the Indiana Geological Survey, a state geological research agency based at Indiana University Bloomington. The field guide, written in conjunction with the Indiana Geological Survey, contains practical information on safety and cave etiquette, equipment and caving organizations, as well as descriptions of individual caves and their unique history. Features of karst topography -- formed by the dissolution over many years of limestone bedrock and characterized by caves, sinkholes, caverns and other formations -- are pictured and described. A section of the book by southern Indiana cave biology experts Julian Lewis and Salisa Lewis provides information about the unusual animals that live in caves.
