Don’t try this at home—read the book instead! (it smells better)

Greg Brick
University of Minnesota Press | 248 pages | May 2009
ISBN 978-0-8166-4597-8| paperback | $18.95

In Subterranean Twin Cities, geologist, historian, and urban speleologist Greg Brick takes us on an adventurous, educational, and—thankfully—sanitary tour beneath the streets and into the myriad tunnels, caves, and industrial spaces that make up the Twin Cities’ fascinating and vast underground landscape. Brick shines a headlamp (with extra batteries) into the labyrinths beneath the Twin Cities and reminds us that what we see aboveground is really only half of the story.

"Subterranean Twin Cities is a treasure—a book for the Tom Sawyer in all of us. Greg Brick is one of those few persons with the unique talent to write expertly about his adventures, bringing readers along with him on hands and knees."—Steve Thayer, author of Saint Mudd and The Weatherman

"An important and fascinating contribution to the literature of the underground."—Julia Solis, author of New York Underground
