Caves: The Extreme Earth


By Richard A. Crooker"Chile (Modern World Nations)"
Chelsea House Publications | Pages: 120 | 2004-04 | ISBN: 0791079120 | 7 MB

Entering a cave is like entering a different world. Some caves bear won-

derfully descriptive names such as Jewel Cave, Mystery Cave, or Talk-

ing Rocks Cave. It is easy to see why these geologic wonders sparked the

imaginations of their discoverers. Caves are openings into the Earth that

are environments where some ancient and unusual creatures have lived

and continue to thrive.

Caves, by Jeanne K. Hanson, presents 10 examples of the main types

of caves, including limestone caves, lava caves, sea caves, glacial caves,

and others. Whether you want to study a limestone cave such as Mam-

moth Cave in Kentucky that was dissolved out of solid rock over millions

of years or learn how a lava cave such as Fingals Cave of Scotland was

formed by molten rock, this book will serve as a window into a subter-

ranean world that many people have never seen.
