It's Only a Game and The Game Goes On
Jim Eyre was a master raconteur and cartoonist, being deeply involved in cave rescue and exploration in the Yorkshire Dales. His humour, often outrageous and black but always entertaining, shines through in his two-volume autobiography, It's Only a Game and The Game Goes On. Individually these are £18.50 and £22.50, but for a limited period they are available as a pair for only £30 – a saving of £11.45 over the cost of buying them individually, when posted to a UK address. As with all the books on our website, the higher price shown when choosing an overseas address represents the actual additional cost of posting overseas.
You may read more about Jim's books on their individual pages by following the links, but rest assured: you will surely enjoy reading of Jim's escapades throughout his long life.
You will receive a free laminated, caving-related bookmark with your book order, while stocks last.

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.
