6/21/10: Blind Descent

Ekaterina Medvedeva about to drop the 500-ft. Grand Cascade in Krubera

By Jennifer Napier-Pearce

Salt Lake City, Utah – Explorers have conquered Earth's highest peak, the two poles, even the moon. But in 2004, one frontier remained unclaimed - finding the bottom of the world. Two scientist-explorers set out to make that discovery their own, exploring vast underground supercaves in Mexico and the Republic of Georgia. On Monday, the author James Tabor joins guest host Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about these two relentless adventurers and the dangerous and extraordinary journey to the center of the Earth.

James Tabor will speak at The King's English Bookshop on Saturday, June 26th at 7:00 p.m. For more information, click here or call the store at 801-484-9100.
