MEDIA REVIEWS

"The superb, full-color photos (over 100), eminently readable text, and attractive format on high-quality paper make this a stunning production. Recommended."--Library Journal (starred review)


"A spectacular, general interest book on the karst geology of the Ozark Mountains of Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Kansas. Weaver . . . describes the land, cave formation, groundwater, cave life for the lay reader. His text is splendidly embellished by some 110 of the best detailed and most aesthetic color plates of cave formation ever published."--Scitech Book News


"The Wilderness Underground is the finest work on Missouri caves to come along since Luella Agnes Owen, a geologist from St. Joseph published her explorations in 1898. . . . The Wilderness Underground is a history lesson, a geography lesson, a bit of biology and a random sampling of history rolled into one easy-on-the-eyes book. It's a long-overdue look at one reason Missouri is such an interesting state."--Rural Missouri
