The First Edition of "Dunbar Cave:  The Showplace of the South" was printed in May 2005 and was 145 pages long.  As luck would have it, just a matter of weeks before that manuscript was sent to the Editor, a major discovery of Indian glyphs was found in the cave.  Knowing that these would take years to study and evaluate, the decision was made to go ahead with publication at that time.

The new, Second Edition of "Dunbar Cave:  The Showplace of the South" was printed in July 2011 and is 234 pages long and contains much new material about the long and colorful history of this cave.  There are numerous photographs of the Indian glyphs as well as many new historic photos of the cave.  Much has been added about the use of the cave by Big Bands from 1931 to 1947 and the ownership of the cave by Roy Acuff from 1948 to 1966.

All in all, this is a much improved version of the book.  If you enjoyed the First Edition, you owe it to yourself to read this Second Edition.
