Far from bringing to light trivia, Deep Cover Cleveland presents topics of natural, cultural and social import and ties them to larger events in the region and world. Vol I, spanning geologic time and the last ice age up to the financial depression of 1893, uncovers forgotten facets of Northeast Ohio's changing landscape, prehistory, Native American heritage, unique architectural history, and more, always keeping the area's people primary.**As of May, 2016 volume I has been revised with more pictures and info. and greater clarity.
