About this title:

Synopsis: This text is an historical recreation of an event in the past that became the first true media spectacle in America. The book charts the story of Floyd Collins' entrapment in a Kentucky cave in 1925, and the subsequent rescue attempt that caused sensationalism and hysteria.

Review:

""The event was ranked the third largest news story between World Wars I and II, topped only by Charles Lindbergh's crossing of the Atlantic in 1927 and the kidnapping of his baby in 1932."" -- "El Paso Times"

""This gripping account of the 1925 entrapment of Floyd Collins in Sand Cave simultaneously thrills and terrifies any reader."" -- "Kentucky Living"

""An eye-opening look at the 1925 news story of Kentuckian Floyd Collins, trapped in a cave near Cave City.... Both a fine historical investigative piece and a compelling read."" -- "Kentucky Monthly"

""The story of Floyd Collins's entrapment in a Kentucky cave makes for chilling and exciting reading."" -- "Library Journal"

""The tension and confusion of the days of rescue attempts are made real.... The abysmally tragic efforts to capitalize on an exhibition of the cave explorer's body is not omitted."" -- "The Augusta Chronicle"

""An exciting narrative account of Floyd Collins's entrapment in a Kentucky cave in 1925 and the folklore that grew around what became a great public event."" -- "The Journal of Southern History"

""TRAPPED! is both a tense adventure and a brilliant historical recreation of the past."" -- "pselunking-books.blogspot.com"
