A Bedside Book for Older Cavers
Now back in stock
Every so often a book comes along that has a wide appeal, wider even that for cavers alone. In his 'bedside book', John Gillett explains how older cavers develop and maintain a positive attitude; it is filled with his stories and anecdotes, philosophies and stimulating thoughts. Younger cavers will one day become older and might wish to see where they are going. Older readers will surely recognise themselves and their friends, at least by reason of having experienced similar thoughts and escapades. But for everyone, just sit down and read and enjoy.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EU CUSTOMERS
On 1 July 2021 the EU removed all exemptions for tax and customs duty on low value items posted from the UK to the EU, meaning that although VAT is 0% on books and magazines in the UK, VAT is charged within the EU and the tax (potentially plus a handling fee) now apply to all orders to the EU.
We are unable to post any items to the EU with VAT or other duties prepaid; as a small company, it is a long way outside our abilities to engage with an agent to do so. All items are therefore mailed as DDU (Delivery Duty Unpaid). Ordering any item from Wild Places requires that you accept responsibility for paying the VAT applicable in your country and any other local charges on delivery.
To be clear: Wild Places will NOT cover any charges levied by your country; it is your responsibility to accept these when placing an order. We apologise for the situation, but it is outside our control. Refusal to pay charges upon delivery will not be accepted as a reason for refunding in full any returned items.
NOTE: Norway and Switzerland are outside the EU and orders will be filled as normal.
