"The Child in the Cavern" (Jules Verne)
« on: April 29, 2017, 05:14:52 pm »
“The Child in the Cavern” written by Jules Verne in 1877 (This edition published in 1914). An interesting tale of the “doings” inside a coal mine in Stirling, Scotland. Although a fiction, Verne appears to accurately describe the mining of coal from a miner’s perspective. Includes geology, gases and natural chambers.  Easy to read. (Free on Kindle too)

I find the geology a little suspect...
