COVER: Opening GoliathBorealis Books author Cary J. Griffith and his book Opening Goliath were  featured in the June issue of Natural History Magazine.

“For the great silent majority who prefer to cheat death by staying aboveground–in other words, for those who don’t suffer from that peculiar mental affliction called caving–Griffith provides a safe and sane way of exploring the underground realm.” Natural History Magazine

And here he is, suiting up with Preston to scuba dive a tight, difficult crossing into the newly discovered cave—now named the Iconoclast Section.
