Product Overview

The remains of ancient civilizations hold the keys to the fascinating histories of vanished cultures and their many secrets. Are these places still haunted by long-past tragedies? In this title, readers will glimpse abandoned ruins such as Machu Picchu, Peru, known as the Lost City of the Incas. In 1911, explorer Hiram Bingham discovered this deserted city high in the Andes Mountains after it had been forgotten for 400 years. The beautiful remnants of the city included about 200 stone buildings. But what had happened to the people of Machu Picchu? Why did they simply vanish? No one can say for sure. The mysteries of the 11 desolate places featured in this book will keep young readers turning the pages wanting more and more.
