Since Marquette and Joliet first explored the Mississippi River in 1673, the legend of the Piasa Bird has fascinated and fueled the imaginations of all who discover the bizarre creature’s painting on the river bluffs near Alton, IL. Kristi Lesko, a photojournalist for International Species Magazine, comes out to spend a sweet June day riding her bike along the dramatic bluffs and getting acquainted with her new digital camera. While shooting the Piasa, she comes across busy vultures. Closer inspection reveals bones, human skulls among them, and she snaps a few photos. Strickler and Dunne are two local legends in their own right, and when they discover Kristi trespassing at the entrance to an abandoned copper mine that they have claimed for their own, they force her into the mine at gunpoint.

    "If you like caving or outdoors adventure, you MUST buy & enjoy this book!" Big Muddy will keep you on your toes the entire way through! If you like fabulous descriptive imagery that allows you to easily join right in with the characters that never are without another surprise around the corner, you will adore and be stuck on the fast-paced storyline of Beneath the Big Muddy. Always waiting to see what the next plot twist will be, it kept my attention the entire way through. With plenty of substance to go around, I felt as though this book was a spectacular value. I hope to read it again and again, to revisit the characters that you are bound to fall in love with in Big Muddy.

    "BEANEATH THE BIG MUDDY: A REVIEW" From the first word to the last in Ms. Cummings "teaser" lead to her second book, "BENEATH THE BIG MUDDY," who wouldn't buy this book. 266 pages jam-packed with action, facts, history! A book which piques your imagination from the get-go! A MUST READ! When a young woman can go out, hike the trails and follow her gut instinct, she is something! The body of the book, cover to cover, is well worth the read. A first edition buy is a keeper, and an autographed first edition even better, as I predict BENEATH THE BIG MUDDY will be a smash hit! Good going Ms. Cummings. Anxiously awaiting your 3rd book!
