Mystery on Blood Mountain is part two of the series 'Drawn to Darkness', a fiction. Drawn from experiences as a child growing up in the 50's and living in the mountains. Forty-five years of caving has given my many experences. The cave in the book is totally fictitious, but so much like the many caves found in the mountains of Tennessee. This book is about exploration and adventure, about young people having fun and getting to know each other.
I have always heard that true stories are stranger than fiction. The fiction in this book is biased on parts of true stories put together for Matthew, the main character and his friends, John, Clair, and Joann. Teenagers in a small Tennessee mountain town, growing up in an age of uncertainty and threat of nuclear war. But free to explore the world around them.
