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. 

The tales of these forgotten cities are mysterious, intriguing stories, and Aude de Tocqueville has detailed them all with depressing clarity. 

Within the pages of this book are the illustrated stories of these abandoned and forsaken urban destinations, and the fates they met. 

For history buffs, mystery fanatics, and travel junkies alike, the Atlas of Lost Cities is a highly entertaining read filled with stories of the world’s forgotten destinations.

Aude de Tocqueville is the author of numerous books about historical or artistic themes, including Monumental Paris and The Most Beautiful Villages of France.  She is an award-winning cultural heritage history author who has published more than 20 books in her native France
