Minnesota Caves: History & Lore

Minnesota Caves: History & Lore   

Price: $21.99 

Minnesota's caves have a deep history.  Carver's Cave is the first to be described in the literature of North America after explorer Jonathan Carver visited it in 1766.  The storied Fountain Cave was the birthplace of the city of St Paul.

Just after the American Civil War, Chute's Cave inspired an elaborate hoax regarding an ancient civilization.  Folklore surrounds Petrified Indian Cave, where a strangely shaped stalagmite was mistaken for a person turned to stone.  Geologist Greg Brick, PhD, uses decades of research to uncover the secrets of geological wonders.  145PP & BW images.
