Lechuguilla: Jewel of the Underground

Postby GGibula » Feb 4, 2019 2:20 pm

Might anyone have a copy of a National Geographic video program from the 1980s entitled Lechugilla: Jewel of the Underground? Nat'l Geographic tells me it's out-of-print.
If so, drop me a line at garygibula@aol.com
thanks!

Are you wanting the book or the video? I own a copy of the book by that name, but I've not heard of a video by that name.
I do have a video about caves in general that included a section about Lechuguilla; Perhaps that is what you are thinking of?
This same video also had a rather lengthy segment about Mammoth Cave, in particular about the connection that made it the world's longest.
It is available on Amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/Mysteries-Underground-Richard-Kiley/dp/B004FN25O2

Or you can watch it for free on YouTube:

If you are looking for the book called Lechuguilla: Jewel of the Undergound, it is also available on Amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/Lechuguilla-Jewel-Underground-Urs-Widmer/dp/3908495016

Also you can find it on Ebay.

Thanks for that info, Stephen.
I specifically remember that it was an official National Geographic video program that aired on either PBS or the Discovery Channel back in the 1980s/90s.
