Thomas Knox was an American journalist during and following the Civil War. He published a number of historical treatises as well as scientific studies, including ‘The Underground World’. The book is a broad and lengthy study on minerology, mining, caving, geological discoveries, oceaneering, and diving. Knox also includes fascinating descriptions of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, the excavation of Pompeii, mountain and cavern climbs in Naples, Mexican mines, coral reefs in the Pacific Ocean, and encounters of wildlife.
