Explore more than forty forsaken urban destinations around the world in a "highly entertaining read ... for history buffs, mystery fanatics and travel junkies alike" (GoNomad). Cities are mortal, but the traces they leave behind tell a fascinating story. In Atlas of Lost Cities, an accomplished travel writer reveals the rise and fall of notable places, each pithy portrait illuminated by a vintage map that puts armchair explorers right in the scene. Wander with care through: Ancient and legendary places like Pompeii, Teotihuacán, and Angkor Contemporary wonders like Centralia, a nearly abandoned Pennsylvania town consumed by unquenchable underground fire Eerie planned communities like Nova Citas de Kilamba in Angola, where housing, schools, and stores were built for 500,000 people who never came Epecuen, a tourist town in Argentina that was swallowed by water With each map are fantastical illustrations that help the reader envision these hubs as they were in their prime. A perfect gift for the traveler who believes he or she has seen it all.
