Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Krisan Murphy
From the rain forests to the deserts to the open plains stories, myths, and discoveries of lost cities are cherished around the world. Wealth of riches and culture are mysteries still unfolding in the lost cities found in this fascinating book—one in a series of the "Top Ten Landmarks" around the world. About the city of Atlantis, readers learn Plato's reference to it when he described it as a kind of a paradise. Familiar lost cities such as Atlantis, Pompeii, Troy, and El Dorado are explored in this book. An intriguing lost city called Angkor is pictured and described as having been the largest city in the world containing over one thousand Hindu temples with expansive roads and canals. Photographs of the remains of the lost city of Petra, carved out of sandstone cliffs, capture its mammoth entrances. Archaeologists, scientists, and explorers conjecture the reasons why both large and small civilizations abandoned these lost cities. Whether erupting volcanoes, tsunamis, enemies, or disease led to the abandonment of these cities and are the unsolved mysteries still shrouding them. A glossary and an index are included, as well as a page of book and online resources for further study of this fascinating subject. Reviewer: Krisan Murphy
