Mat hopes to improve his family's financial troubles by discovering a new cave that no one else knows about. He thinks that charging the public for tours will bring his family the money they need. Getting lost in a cave gives Mat a different outlook on life, and teaches him things he never knew about himself.
This book includes three science fiction stories. In Dr. Cyclops by Henry Kuttner, a brilliant scientist learns how to reduce Lilliputian size and finds the perfect guinea pigs when three colleagues try to discover his secrets. In Too Late for Eternity by Bryce Walton, a man fears growing old and being replaced, in a female-dominated society where women never age. In The Harpers of Titan by Edmond Hamilton, Captain Future and his Futuremen face a hideous peril as Simon Wright, the Living Brain, is implanted in a human body.
While visiting his uncle and cousin on a Caribbean island, Steve spends the summer performing science projects and collecting data that will help him win a Science scholarship to study oceanography at the U.S. Government Marine Science Institute at the University of Miami. Surviving a hurricane gives him a new outlook on life.
