Also known as The Underground City or The Child of the Cavern. From George Munro's Seaside Library, touted as the only unabridged library edition published, this 1877 classic presents an intriguing quest set deep in the dark coal mines of Scotland. A subterranean city struggles with fossil fuel depletion, tormenting highland spirits, threatening explosive gases, and a lurking, hidden evil presence. The old miner Simon Ford, his wife Madge and son Harry, along with the engineer James Starr, venture into the mysterious labyrinths and discover something much more than coal.

    " This was a nice casual read. The first Verne I've read. The characters weren't deep but the idea of the story is very interesting. "

    " This was very short, it took me less than 40 minutes to read it. The tale was interesting enough, but not one of Verne's best works. I wouldn't go out of your way to buy it, but if someone has it laying around you might as well give it a shot. "

    " I was expecting a more "supernatural" story like Journey to the Center of the Earth, but this was an OK read for a quick book. "

About the Author
Author Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828–1905) is considered by many the father of science fiction. Born in Nantes, France, he studied law but turned to writing opera libretti until the 1863 publication of Five Weeks in a Balloon, the first of his Extraordinary Voyages series. Its success encouraged him to produce a number of classic and prophetic science fiction novels, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. His stories foresaw many scientific and technological developments, including the submarine, television, and space travel.
