Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alvin Frank McDonald (1873 - December 15, 1893) was an early American caver and tour guide at what became Wind Cave National Park in South Dakota, the fourth longest cave system in the world, from 1889 to 1893. From the age of 16 until he was 20, he discovered and mapped the first 8-10 miles of the cave using candlelight. His exploration and mapping was so extensive and thorough for the time that it was not until 1963, 70 years after Alvin McDonald's death, that major new passageways were discovered in Wind Cave.show more
