Nine Miles to Mammoth Cave
Mammoth Cave attracted travelers from around the world in the 1800s, but the stage coach ride over Kentucky's rough roads made for a long,hard trip. By the 1800s, cave visitors could leave the horses behind and ride to this world-famous cave in modern style on the Mammoth Cave Railroad. Read *Nine Miles to Mammoth Cave* to find out... -How did Mammoth and other near-by show caves become famous enough to warrant building a railroad just to serve cave-bound tourists? -What is a tank engine? -Are dummy engines intellectually inferior ot other locomotives? All this and more! As a Mammoth Cave Guide, Colleen O'Connor Olson has written other books on early visitors to Mammoth Cave. Among them, *Scary Stories of Mammoth Cave,* *Prehistoric Cavers of Mammoth Cave,* and *Mammoth Cave by Lantern Light.*
