    • What a great way to introduce 4th/5th graders to this era in American history! I enjoy when a fictional book is based on true events & characters as this one is. Makes me want to take my 10year old daughter on a trip to Mammoth Caves.

    • ARC from Baker and TaylorIn 1842, young Elias is sent to Dr. Croghan in Mammoth Cave, Kentucky, where the doctor's innovative treatments are supposed to cure his consumption. Since his father died of the ailment, Elias' mother is desperate enough to send him all the way from Virginia to live there. In small huts within the cave, the patients are kept quiet and fed restrictive diets in hope that the damp air and underground spring might effect a cure. Elias isn't happy with inactivity, and soon m [...]

    • This was a decent story. There was nothing really wrong with it, except it did drag a little in the middle. A fascinating piece of history that most people don't know about - a doctor's attempts to cure consumption by creating a village underground in Mammoth Cave. A slave who made extensive and accurate maps of the cave's interior. I recommend reading a little bit of the history first. I got lost a bit when they talked about following which paths and landmarks in the cave, but if I had a map in [...]

      River Runs Deep is a gripping historical fiction read based in Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. You’ll travel back to 1843 with a 12 year old boy named Elias who has consumption and has been sent to Mammoth Cave for its claimed healing properties. There are a number of other patients who are quite ill as well as slaves who take care of the patients and give tours to visitors of the many tunnels and sites. But Mammoth Cave also has a secret…a secret that if revealed would put many people in danger. [...]

    • This was interesting but definitely a young adult reading level. It was a great story but not challenging or thought- provoking for the advanced reader.

    • It took a while to get into this story, but I found myself itching to finish so I could see how it ended. I had no idea how Mammoth Cave played a part in sheltering runaway slaves.

    • A unique story about a surprising part of American History. Elias has been sent to live in and heal in an underground cave as a last-ditch attempt to save him from consumption. What he discovers in the cave is more than just other sick people -and is attempts to discover the truth leads to more than just the healing of his lungs.

    • SummaryTwelve-year-old Elias is sent from his Virginia home to Dr. Croghan's experimental hospital located within the Mammoth Caves of Kentucky, in the hopes that he can be cured of consumption (tuberculosis). The cave, owned by Dr. Croghan, is also a tourist attraction, and his slaves lead cave tours as well as attend to patients. After a few days, Elias feels sicker from boredom than illness so he secretly follows a slave named Stephen into a tunnel. He discovers a network of secret tunnels th [...]

    • Set in the 1840s, this is a captivating tale of twelve year old Elias who is sent to live in a cave with other tuberculosis patients. The cave air is meant to help heal them and there is a doctor trying different cures on them. The boy makes friends with some slaves and takes care of an injured pigeon. He is visited by a faceless voice in the dark and he becomes curious about what secrets might be revealed by the inner recesses of the cave. I don’t often choose books set so far in the past but [...]

    • Elias is suffering from tuberculosis and has been sent to Mammoth Cave for treatment. Dr. Croghan's program involves living in the cave, restricting the diet and exercise and hoping for a cure. Elias is only 12 and isn't too happy with the inactivity, but he saw his father die from tuberculosis and doesn't want to follow the same path. He becomes friends with some of Dr. Croghan's slaves and learns there is more to the cave than just the tours and the patients. This was an interesting historical [...]

    • Great historical fiction story set in Mammoth Caves. Having visited the caves as a child it was neat to actually be able to picture several of the scenes in the book from memory.Elias is being sent to Mammoth Caves where a doctor is trying a radical experiment to treat patients of tuberculosis within the caves. Having already lost his father to the disease Elias now has it as well and he is admitted as the youngest patient in the hospital. Days are long and the cave is dark so Elias jumps at the [...]

      In a stunning story that makes history come alive (Booklist), a boy is sent to Mammoth cave to fight a case of consumption and ends up fighting for the lives of a secret community of escaped slaves, who are hidden deep underground. Twelve-year-old Elias has consumption, so he is sent to Kentucky s Mammoth Cave the biggest cave in America where the cool vapors are said to be healing. At first, living in a cave sounds like an adventure, but after a few days, Elias feels more sick of boredom than h [...]

    • This historical fiction book set in the 1800s in Mammoth Cave in Kentucky was an interesting read. I visited Mammoth Cave last summer and read about Dr. Crogan's experimental hospital in the cave. This coming of age story is told through the eyes of twelve-year-old Elias, a patient with consumption who is sent for treatment in the Caves. While he is there he discovers a "haven" of runaway slaves. The book deals with the idea that slaves are property, although glosses over some of the treatment o [...]

    • Interesting setting - Mammoth Cave - during the 1800s, and interesting premise (Elias is a young patient sent there to cure his "consumption", but soon discovers a community of runaway slaves living deep within the cave's dark and dank labyrinth) but I soon got bored of Elias and wanted to hear more from the perspectives of the slaves. The author notes in the epilogue that the existence of runaway slaves living in the caves in Kentucky really happened, so I would have rather preferred hearing a [...]

    • This was a very interesting book about a boy, Elias, who has consumption. After his father dies of the same disease, his family sent him Mammoth Cave in Kentucky where a doctor is trying different "cures" for people with consumption. While deep in the cave Elias meets the slaves who work for the doctor and meets the other patients. He also learns a secret. Can Elias protect Haven - a refuge for runaway slaves deep in th heart of the cave system.Based on history, this was an interesting look at t [...]

    • Being from Kentucky, I was immediately interested in reading a historical fiction novel about Mammoth Cave. Although I found the first half a little hard to get into, I thoroughly enjoyed the last half. I found the idea of treating tuberculosis in this way to be fascinating. This is a great book for young readers as it is nice and clean. I also found the references to knots interesting even though I know nothing about them. Now I would love to visit Mammoth Cave again!

    • I appreciated Elias's thoughts about slavery and how they changed as he got to know those helping to care for him during his time in Mammoth Cave. I am a cave fan, having visited Mammoth Cave as a youngster and adult, might be time to go again and pay attention to this part of its history. I might have enjoyed the book more if it was presented as NF, I kept wanting to skip ahead to the research notes in the back matter.

    • Fairly good ending - didn't agree with the Dr. taking credit for healing Elias. Those people needed activity, hope, a purpose, sunshine and fresh air! Elias began to improve when he had an interest in the life around him. End of book listing of books used in research of this one that look worth perusing.

    • I really enjoyed this book. Elias, a sickly boy, was sent to a "hospital" in Mammoth Caves to be treated. Through the course of the story, I learned so much about the role of the caves in both treatment of tuberculosis, as well as the underground railroad movement. Both Elias' health and his spirit thrive during his time in the cave. A wonderful middle grade novel.

    • My dear friend from college has done it again with another great book for young people. I was excited for this one because it's for my kids' age group and takes place relatively close by in Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. I really enjoyed the book, and my kids are bickering over which one of them gets to read it first.

    • Having recently visited Mammouth Caves myself I was excited to read this book. A little worried at first because it was in the teen section at the library. It was an excellent story and well written though obviously written for a younger audience. The only bad thing is I read it in a couple of hours and now have to find a new book :)

      This historical fiction book set in the 1800s in Mammoth Cave in Kentucky was a fascinating read. I had no idea the cave (which I had visited in my childhood) had been used as a hospital for tuberculosis patients as well as a hiding place for escaped slaves. This coming of age story is told through the eyes of twelve-year-old Elias, a patient at Dr. Crogan's experimental "hospital" in the cave.

    • Exciting adventure set in Mammoth Cave in the mid-1800s. Did you know that there was a hospital for tuberculosis patients inside the cave? And did you know the cave was a way station on the Underground Railroad? I sure didn't! Good historical fiction (like this book) is the way I like to read about history.

    • Elias is sent to Mammoth Caves to cure his consumption. But here, he also encounters part of the slave trade and the underground railroad.A good historical fiction novel that has interesting characters, but seems awkward in some of its narration. I liked it well enough, but it won't be memorable.

      Fascinating tale!Bradbury captures a piece of history in this enchanting tale. Set in historical Mammoth Cave, the legends of this wondrous location meet up with trials of the 1800s-- tuberculosis, slavery-- this story has it all!

    • The setting was fascinating as I never knew the Mammoth Caves were used to treat tuberculosis patients. An interesting bit of history. The story itself was ok. It was long in spots but combined with the slavery theme it will appeal to historical fic fans.

    • I thought this was a great historical fiction novel for young readers. Does it delve into the intricacies and horrors of slavery or the politics if the time period? No. But it is based on a real place and real people, which makes it pretty interesting.

    • Another great novel in verse.

    • Experimental TB/consumption treatment hospital + underground railroad in Mammoth Caves of Kentucky = pretty interesting historically based adventure story.

    • I kind of got bored of this book. I just lost interest
