About the Book

The sensationalism and hysteria of the attempt to rescue Floyd Collins from the cave where he was trapped in early 1925 generated America's first true media spectacle and one of the seminal events of the century. The crowds that gathered outside Sand Cave in Kentucky turned the rescue site into a carnival. Collins' situation was front-page news throughout the country, ranked the third largest news story between two World Wars. Hourly bulletins interrupted radio programs, and even Congress recessed to hear the latest word. With a new epilogue revealing additional information about the Floyd Collins story that has come to light since the book was first published, Trapped! is both a tense adventure and a brilliant historical recreation of the past.
