A trip to the center of the earth, 1875

The deep and immense (hence the name) Mammoth Caves always excerted a fascination with the Americans, so it would follow that they would serve as the backdrop for a hollow earth novel. Howard De Vere, penname of Howard Van Orden, did just that, with his A Trip To The Center Of The Earth, which was serialized in New York Boys' Weekly, from June 8 till August 5, 1878. later it was published in the Five Cent Wide Awake Library #1195, on March 17, 1894.
