An edifying and entertaining look see into the oddities of caves, with particular attention to those made not by water but by acid, leaving behind astonishing mineral formations. The microbiological dynamics with the geology and its effects were simply and quickly described. One could do worse than put "geomicrobiology" on a list to read up on later.
