Summary The sensationalism and hysteria of the rescue attempt in early 1925 of caver Floyd Collins generated America's first true media spectacle and one of the seminal events of the century. The crowds that gathered outside Sand Cave in Kentucky turned the rescue site into a carnival. Collins' situation was front-page news throughout the country, hourly bulletins interrupted radio programs, and Congress recessed to hear the latest word. With a new epilogue revealing additional information about the Floyd Collins story that has come to light since the book was first published, Trapped! is both a tense adventure and a brilliant historical recreation of the past.
