Professor Emeritus Richard J. Heggen of the University of New Mexico has a deep and abiding interest in underground rivers. As a professor civil engineering, he has performed many intricate studies of such systems, and from a diverse set of perspectives which include the humanities, natural history, philosophy, and of course, geology. In the introduction to this fascinating book, Heggen notes that ""hydrology is more than science; it's the study of our relationship to water. We draw water to live, of course, but we as well draw upon water for intellectual sustenance." The book is presented into separate parts, and all told, it contains 25 chapters. Chapters in the book include "Greek Mythology", "Subterranean Engines", "Waters of the Hollow Earth", and "Groundwater Science". It is a fine read, and one that will complement any formal study of such matters. [KMG]
