Quicksand is formed when too much water flows into an area of sand or soil, turning it into a thick muck. While wet dirt might not sound all that dangerous, it can actually be deadly. Find out where quicksand is most likely to form and follow the stories of people who have experienced firsthand what it is like to be trapped in a quicksand pit. Readers will also learn how scientists are studying quicksand today and how to safely avoid or escape from this dangerous mud.
