Lost CitiesBook - 2013
Normally, cities are busy, lively places. People work, play, raise families, and travel back and forth within them. How, then, can an entire city become lost? Some cities disappear when they are destroyed by a disaster, such as an earthquake or a flood. Others empty out when the industry that gave them their start shuts down. Still others are lost for reasons that are largely unknown. Among the 11 lost cities in this book, you will visit an abandoned city in constant danger of sliding down a rocky cliff, a town that was buried by a desert, and a city that disappeared when it was flooded-on purpose!
