Publisher's Comments

A professional geologist and author, Brick has written numerous scholarly and general-interest articles about caves and underground spaces; his work has been featured in National Geographic Adventure Magazine and on the History Channel. Based on extensive professional study of the area, his book provides general readers with an armchair tour of the sometimes dangerous but fascinating collection of tunnels, caves, and industrial spaces that make up the subterranean landscape of Minnesota's Twin Cities. These include tube-like natural caves, underground streams, and below-ground spaces used by brewing, mushroom farming, cheese ripening, silica mining, and flour-milling businesses, as well as utility industries. Illustrated with b&w photos. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
