“Snail Shell Cave is part of a vast, underground drainage system in Rutherford County, Tennessee, that begins near Eagleville then flows northeast for 13 miles to emerge as a huge spring on the bank of the West Fork of the Stones River. …This book is lavishly illustrated with photographs and maps. It begins with the early exploration in the 1950’s by Tom Barr and other local cavers, follows exploration and mapping throughout the 1970’s and 1980’s, and continues up through the current daring and exciting exploration by cave divers.”
