Reverend Martin visited Mammoth Cave in 1851 and became quite fascinated with its history, beauty and grandeur. After finding that there was little information available to the public about the cave, he penned this guidebook and enlisted the help of some acquaintances to produce the illustrations. The guide provided information about the hotel, the owners/managers of the cave, the slave guides, the saltpetre works, cave formations and other objects of interest to be found on the tour routes.

Excerpt from Pictorial Guide to the Mammoth Cave, Kentucky In America, Nature seems to have purposely operated on a gigantic scale. Her Lakes, her Rivers, and her Mountains, may be instanced as an attestation of what we say. Greatness and sublimity characterize them all. Poets have sung their praises, tourists have described them in all the eloquence of prose, and painters have labored to illustrate them upon the canvas. They have been famed everywhere. But at the same time, an object of Nature, as sublime as beautiful, and as great as the Andes or the Mississippi, has been comparatively neglected, - we allude to the Mammoth Cave of Kentucky. Little has hitherto been said of it by authors, less done towards familiarizing it to the Million, by the painter. It is with the view of filling up this blank, though it may be imperfectly, that the present work has been undertaken.

Excerpt from Pictorial Guide to the Mammoth Cave, Kentucky: A Complete Historic, Descriptive and Scientific Account of the Greatest Subterranean Wonder of the Western World The Mammoth Cave is justly considered the most wonderfully picturesque natural phenomenon; the most extensive and enchanting subterranean cavern on the American Continent, and perhaps in the whole world. The great traveler, close observer and descriptive writer, Bayard Taylor, says of the Mammoth Cave: "It is the greatest natural curiosity that I have ever visited - Niagara not excepted; and he whose expectations are not satisfied by its marvelous avenues, domes and sparry grottoes, must be either a fool or a demi-god." The different avenues, grottoes, and communicating passages, already explored and known to the guides, number 225, and the sum total of their combined length exceeds 150 miles. Many of these avenues are from 20 to 100 feet in width, and from 5 to 40 feet from floor to ceiling. Some of the largest and finest have in some places a firm, smooth and even floor, affording safe and easy passage, while in other places the floor is rough, rocky or cavernous and not altogether free from danger.

This book reveals the science and beauty of Mammoth Cave, the world's longest cave, which has played an important role in the natural sciences. It offers a comprehensive and interdisciplinary treatment of the cave, combining insights from leading experts in fields ranging from archeology and cultural history to life science and geosciences. The first animals specialized for cave life in North America, including beetles, spiders, crayfish, and fish, were discovered in Mammoth Cave in the 1840s. It has also been used and explored by humans, including Native Americans, who mined its sulfate minerals and later African-American slaves, who made a map of the cave. More recent stories include 'wars' between commercial cave owners, epic exploration trips by modern cave explorers, and of course tourism. The first section of the book is an extensive description including maps and photos of the cave, its basic structural pattern, and how it relates to the surface landscape. The second section covers the human history of utilization and exploration of the cave, including mining, tourism, and medical experiments. Cave science is the topic of the third section, including geology, hydrology, mineralogy, climatology, paleontology, ecology, biodiversity, and microbiology. The fourth section looks to the future, with an overview of environmental issues facing Mammoth Cave managers. The book is intended for anyone interested in caves in general and Mammoth Cave in particular, experts in one discipline seeking information about other areas, and researchers and students interested in the many avenues of pursuit possible in Mammoth Cave.

“A fascinating story.” —LeVar Burton The thrilling adventures of a slave who became known worldwide for his explorations of Mammoth Cave. If you toured Mammoth Cave in Kentucky in the year 1838, you would have been led by candlelight through dark, winding tunnels to the edge of a terrifying bottomless pit. Your guide would have been seventeen-year-old Stephen Bishop, an African American slave who became known around the world for his knowledge of Mammoth Cave. Bishop needed bravery, intelligence, and curiosity to explore the vast cavern. Using only a lantern, rope, and other basic caving equipment, he found a way to cross the bottomless pit and discover many more miles of incredible grottoes and tunnels. For the rest of his life he guided visitors through the cave, showing them how to stoop, bend, and crawl through passageways that were sometimes far from the traditional tour route. Based on the narratives of those who toured the cave with him, Journey to the Bottomless Pit is the first book for young readers ever written about Stephen Bishop.
