Front 800 x 600Title: Coal Dust and Cave Mud 

 Description:

Forty years of caving keeps me thinking a lot about the sport. In this book I share not only what I have learned and experienced, but also what a few others have shared about caves and how they also became interested in the sport. Most of the caves discussed are in the Southeast with a few elsewhere. Detail exploration and mapping is given for Pettyjohn Cave in Georgia and Pumphouse Cave in Tennessee. Caves have been used for everything from fallout shelters to mushroom farms. However I really believe that it is the mystery of caves that draws us back. Not knowing what lies below and that curiosity that we all have within us. We find all kinds of excuses to enter a cave. Some study the rocks and formations, others like to make maps or study the cave life, but in the end it is the mystery that holds us in it’s grip. I remember playing on the hill side behind my Grandparents home, and finding holes in the gullies that were dug by my father and his brothers, or possibly one of my older cousins. I even dug a few myself, more like ditches covered with boards and dirt for a hid-out. There is a strange pleasure in getting dirty, and covered with mud, not having to worry about staying clean. A good friend of mine loved to wear white overalls, which of course did not remain white very long in the cave. There is also something about crawling around that seems enjoyable. Getting to know a cave can be quite a reward. When you are able to find your way, and even share with others about where, and how you got to a special place.

At some  point in life a lot of us will have the urge to write about them. I don’t know if my life is much different than all the other men who grew up in the 50’s and 60’s, but I would like to share it with you anyway.

Fiction

 Title: Drawn to Darkness

 Description:

 Drawn to Darkness is a work of short fiction, drawn however from experiences as a child growing  up in the 50’s and living in the mountains. The cave along the PineyRiver is real, and I explored it  as I played there alone. The cave in the book is totally fictitious, but much like the many caves found in the mountains of Tennessee. This book is about exploration and adventure, about young people having fun and getting to know each other. I have always heard that true stories are stranger than fiction. The fiction in this book is based on parts of true stories put together for Jimmy, the main character, and his friends, John, Clair, and Joann. It centers around teenagers in a small Tennessee mountain town, growing up in an age of uncertainty and threat of nuclear war, but free to explore the world around them. This is a sixty-five page paperback. Book is rated safe for family reading.
