Atlas of Lost Cities

A Travel Guide to Abandoned and Forsaken Destinations

ISBN: 9780316352024 (HB - E)

Atlas of Lost Cities reveals the fascinating destinies of 44 once-thriving communities and centers of commerce and culture, which exist today as vacant ruins, where only far off memories and ghosts remain. Like humans, cities are mortal. They are born, they thrive, and they eventually die. In Atlas of Lost Cities, Aude de Tocqueville tells the compelling narrative of the rise and fall of such notable places as Pompeii, Teotihuacán, and Angkor. She also details the less well known places, including Centralia, an abandoned Pennsylvania town consumed by unquenchable underground fire; Nova Citas de Kilamba in Angola, where housing, schools, and stores were built for 500,000 people who never came; and Epecuen, a tourist town in Argentina that was swallowed up by water. Beautiful, original artwork shows the location of the lost cities and depicts how they looked when they thrived.
