Mazes and Marvels of Wind Cave
E.C. Horn was a travel writer of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His booklet, Mazes and Marvels of Wind Cave (1901), along with Luella Agnes Owen's Cave Regions of the Ozarks and Black Hills (1898) were the first books published about Wind Cave. These books, in conjunction with Alvin McDonald's diary, The Private Account of A.F. McDonald, provide the earliest accounts of Wind Cave.

Winds caused by changes in barometric pressure are what give Wind Cave its name. These winds have been measured at the cave's walk-in entrance at over 70 mph. The winds at the natural entrance of the cave attracted the attention of Native Americans and early settlers.
