Blue Johnís Cavern is the first book in the Crystal Cave Adventures series. In the novel, teenagers Emma and Brody live an ordinary life in Diamond Falls, West Virginia until one day when their neighbor, a famous geologist they call Mr. M, shows them the wildest time of their lives.
When Mr. M's prized rock and mineral collection is destroyed before it can be displayed at the state museum, Emma and Brody jump at the chance to find new
samples. The geologist accepts the offer, and promptly sends them back to the
year 1775 to help!
Back in time and across the pond in Derbyshire, England, Emma and Brody team with a mysterious young girl named Max to recover one of the rarest minerals in the
world: Blue John Fluorite. Tapping into courage they never knew they had, the
formerly ordinary West Virginians must protect a cave, avoid gun-toting
soldiers, and return to the present before they're trapped forever.
The adventure may be fiction, but the Blue John Fluorite and the locations in the novel are real. Through this activity book, you will love discovering the interesting facts and science behind the exciting story.
Blue Johnís Cavern is the first book in the middle-grade adventure/sci-fi series Crystal Cave Adventures. If you like a little excitement thrown in with your science, then you'll love Tracy Barnhart's fast-paced and exciting series and this companion activity book.
