Description

More Journeys Beneath the Earth by David William Gill

The autobiography of a cave explorer, volume 2

Dave Gill's first volume in his autobiography proved a tremendous success, hence this second volume ... As the book cover states:

'The second volume of David Gill's autobiography, More Journeys Beneath the Earth, covers the experiences of one of Britain's most experienced cave explorers, beginning with his employment in Sarawak at the Gunung Mulu National Park, His work on World Heritage nomination and establishing a new protected area, the Gunung Buda National Park along with many high-profile expeditions are recounted with the struggles, adventures, humour and near misses along with teams of highly experienced and competent cave explorers over a 25-year period.

'On leaving Sarawak and returning to the UK, his expeditions took him back to the Nakanai Mountains of East New Britain, Papua New Guinea and later his return to Sarawak to continue voluntary work on conservation, project planning, engineering and helping local communities.

'Along with David's first volume, Journeys Beneath the Earth, over 50 years of adventurous exploration are covered mostly under dangerous and challenging conditions.'

For the first volume of Dave's autobiography, follow this link to Journeys Beneath the Earth.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR ALL DESCENT SUBSCRIBERS OUTSIDE THE UK

We regret that due to the volatility of Royal Mail postage charges, we have been forced to remove the option for two-year subscriptions. We have also been forced to remove the option for economy mail to the EU, given indications that Royal Mail intends to remove this service.

All international mail is now being despatched in paper wrapping using Royal Mail customs and address labels mandated by them. We also regret this means we can no longer indicate the last issue of your subscription on the mailing sheet or supply a reminder to renew with the final edition. Please track your own subscription ending or check with us at any time. Subscriptions begun since September 2021 have a comment added in your account (under the tab for the order) which records the final issue to be supplied.

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, it is charged within the EU and the VAT (potentially plus a handling fee) now apply to all orders to the EU.

Ideally, the VAT should be paid at the point of posting, but doing so requires registration with an agent to handle the payments, and this is incredibly expensive and not financially viable. To be clear, all small publishers in the UK are in the same position and we are unable to post any items to the EU with VAT or other duties paid.

Ordering any item from Wild Places, including a Descent subscription, requires that you accept responsibility of paying the VAT 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. We will maintain a link from the left-hand column on the home page with the latest updates. If you are an existing subscriber to Descent and have not replied yet to our enquiries concerning your deliveries, please make contact.

NOTE: Subscribers in Norway or Switzerland (which are outside the EU) should place your order on the Subscription International page or contact us first.
