Cave Diver Jill Heinerth’s Autobiography Due Out In August


Can’t get enough of the thrills and challenges of cave diving? There’s a book coming out this August that could really whet your whistle.

Famed cave diver Jill Heinerth’s autobiography “Into The Planet: My Life As A Cave Diver” is due out this coming August.

A 2017 NOGI Award recipient, Heinerth is the first person — man or woman — to dive into an Antarctic iceberg. She also led a team into a Mexican cenote that found the remains of a Mayan civilization.

The book covers the crucial decisions that can determine whether divers live or die in underwater caves, as well as the challenges of pursuing a career as a female diver. She also writes about the sad experience of having to recover a fellow diver’s body from an underwater cave.

On the happier side, Heinerth writes about her work with scientists to find new underwater species, track our changing climate, and measure how much freshwater remains on earth.

Heinerth’sInto The Planet” comes out August 27th, 2019 in book and audio formats.
