Synopsis


I am the cave,
So cool and dark,
Where time, unending,
Leaves its mark.

The mazes of the cave reach back, from bright to darkest dark. Step through the sunny entrance and what treasures you'll find--colonies of bats sheltering in the dim light, deep chambers decorated with majestic columns of crystallizes rock, and secret worlds where pale, blind creatures live by hearing, touch, and smell.

All these and more await the reader of this stunning collaboration, in which Diane Siebert's rich, evocative text and Wayne McLoughlin's luminous paintings capture the magical, mysterious underground world of caves.
