Taken from Chapter 11: Mammoth Cave Over millions of years a steady trickle of water had carved a large underground maze from a limestone region in Kentucky. The cave system is called Mammoth Cave because of its enormous size. It is now part of a national park. Mammoth Cave is the longest system of caves in the world, with a total mapped length of 560 kilometers (347 miles). Some caverns are as big as New York's Grand Central Station! Cave crickets, blindfish, and blind crayfish all live here.Review:
Great series! Can't say enough good things about any books from Crabtree Publishing. Neil Morris' "Wonders of Our World" series from Crabtree Publishing breaks down environment into specific subjects so that appropriate focus can be given in each educational book. These books will prove much more memorable than competitors on the same subject because they blend simplicity with an effort to entertain: kids will find them bright, colorful, and appealing beyond the usual school applications -- The Midwest Book Review
