Peek inside the book

This work is dedicated to the wonders hidden under our feet; they show that those imagined by the human mind are nothing before the creativity of nature itself. “The Privilege of Light: Subterranean Wonders of Mexico” addresses the subterranean geography of Mexico, its abysses and hidden canyons, its great waterfalls and rivers; its immense halls, galleries and passages; its giant crystals and other formations; and presents the rooms of the Naica mine. Available in Spanish and English
